The New York lawsuit filed in 2013 alleged Trump University engaged in "fraudulent, illegal and deceptive" behavior and operated as an unlicensed educational institute. 

According to the attorney general's office, the defendants had been fighting the lawsuit since it was filed, and the settlement comes as a "stunning reversal."
