Lawyers for president-elect Donald Trump on Thursday will head to court for a hearing pitting the future leader of the United States against a group of students who say they were defrauded by one of his businesses.

The 2010 lawsuit, one of three over the defunct Trump University venture, was filed on behalf of students who say they were lured by false promises to pay up to $35,000 to learn Trump's real estate investing "secrets" from his "hand-picked" instructors. Trump owned 92 percent of Trump University and had control over all major decisions, the students' court papers say.

The president-elect denies the allegations and has argued that he relied on others to manage the business. Trial is scheduled to begin Nov. 28.
