Albany, NY - New York’s ethics commission has dropped Donald Trump’s complaint that the state attorney general engaged in misconduct during an investigation of the former Trump University.

Trump’s December 2013 complaint accused Democratic Attorney General Eric Schneiderman (SHNEYE’-dur-muhn) of soliciting campaign donations from Trump’s daughter even as his office was investigating the mogul’s business school.

Schneiderman had sued Trump four months earlier seeking $40 million and alleging that the school violated consumer protection law and engaged in fraud and that most students never got promised apprenticeships.

Trump said most student surveys rated the program as “excellent.”

The lawsuit is pending.

A call to Trump’s attorney wasn’t immediately returned.

The commission says in a letter that based on its review of material presented and available information it’s not acting on the complaint.
