Jurors have reached a verdict in the civil trial that alleges Donald Trump cheated an 87-year-old woman in a condominium deal.

Jurors were in their second day of deliberations. They spent about 90 minutes deliberating Wednesday before going home.

The case focuses on Trump International Hotel & Tower in Chicago. Jacqueline Goldberg alleges the "Apprentice" star wooed her into buying properties by promising her a profit-sharing plan, and then reneged after she committed to buy.

In his closing argument Wednesday, Goldberg attorney Shelly Kulwin said Trump had engaged in a bait-and-switch scheme. He also said he found Trump repulsive.

Trump attorney Stephen Novack says such personal attacks reveal an absence of evidence.
