SAN DIEGO (AP) – Donald Trump is scheduled to face trial this month in a class-action lawsuit against him and his now-defunct Trump University, potentially taking the witness stand weeks before his inauguration as president of the United States.

U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel, the Indiana-born jurist who was accused of bias by Trump during the campaign for his Mexican heritage, will hold a hearing Thursday on jury instructions and what evidence to allow at trial.

Among the flurry of requests from both sides to be considered today is a highly unusual petition by Trump’s attorneys to exclude any statements made by or about their client during the presidential campaign.

The trial begins Nov. 28.
