Lawsuit against President Trump's hotel dismissed
A federal judge has dismissed one of several lawsuits claiming President Trump benefits illegally from his Washington hotel. The suit, filed by "Cork Wine Bar" claims it lost business because politically-oriented customers picked the Trump International Hotel instead of Cork Wine Bar for their events.
But the judge says, the restaurant cannot claim a competitive disadvantage just because Trump is famous. Trump International Hotel is run by a trust controlled by the president's family.
