Republican U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump holds a rally with supporters in San DiegoBy Jeff Mason and Lawrence Hurley WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A judge, called a "hater" by Donald Trump for his handling of a lawsuit related to the businessman's Trump University real estate school, has unsealed documents related to the case. Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee for the Nov. 8 election, is fighting a lawsuit that accuses his school venture of misleading thousands of people who paid up to $35,000 for seminars to learn about the billionaire's real estate investment strategies. In an order signed on Friday, U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel said that materials, including Trump University procedures on dealing with students and the media, should be unsealed.

Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari speaks during a joint news conference with his French counterpart Francois Hollande at the presidential villa in AbujaBy Ulf Laessing and Tife Owolabi ABUJA/YENAGOA, Nigeria (Reuters) - Nigeria's president on Sunday said he would hold talks with leaders in the oil-producing Delta region to address their grievances in a bid to stop a surge in pipeline attacks, but that an army crackdown would continue. People in the southern Delta region, where oil giants such as Royal Dutch Shell and Chevron operate, have for years complained about the oil industry's pollution and of economic marginalisation by the state. Some have taken up arms and a recent surge in attacks on oil installations has cut Nigeria's oil output to a 20-year low.
