More plaintiffs join suit against Donald Trump over Tampa project

At least 10 more people have joined a lawsuit against Donald Trump, alleging the New York tycoon falsified his role in Trump Tower Tampa, fraudulently enticing deposits out of them. They want their money back after investing in the never-built 52-story luxury condo tower. Trump licensed his name to the $300 million project on the Hillsborough River in exchange for half the profits. But while promoting the skyscraper in 2005, Trump suggested he was co-developing the building with Tampa's SimDag-Robel LLC. About 25 condo buyers sued Trump last fall, a few months after the building lot was sold at a foreclosure auction. Lawyers announced this week that not only has the case moved to federal court, but that another dozen or so depositors have joined as plaintiff's against Trump.
