Attorneys for the Trump Organization, meanwhile, vowed to appeal the decision and said that Trump deserved credit for reviving what had been a failing golf course before he took it over.
Among other things, a former Trump National Golf Course worker has filed a lawsuit alleging she was fired after complaining about sexual harassment; a Trump-owned golf course in Scotland years ago poisoned a 92-year-old woman’s drinking water and refused to fix it; and last year, the Trump International Golf Club sponsored a children’s charity event and asked for $20,000 in golf and catering fees, or four times the amount it had asked for in the past.
Trump’s golf courses have found themselves in several legal disputes in recent years.
