    Donald Trump reportedly will head to Chicago this month for a federal trial in connection with the sale of two units at his downtown high-rise building.

    Attorneys told the Chicago Tribune that Trump already gave a deposition and is expected to testify at the trial, set to begin May 13.

    A lawsuit was filed claiming breach of contract and deceptive practices at Trump Tower. According to the lawsuit, a resident said the sales agreement terms were changed after she put down a $516,000 deposit on two hotel rooms.

    She claims she purchased the rooms as an investment as part of a revenue-sharing opportunity she said was offered by Trump Tower. She said those terms were changed after the deposit and she wants her money back.

    The executive vice president and litigation counsel for the Trump Organization told the Tribune they view this as buyer's remorse.
