The trial in the New York attorney general's $250 million lawsuit against former President Donald Trump, scheduled to begin Oct. 2, is expected to take almost three months, the judge overseeing the case said Friday.
Trump, who is again running for president and also faces criminal charges in four jurisdictions, is not required to attend the civil trial.
It is not immediately clear whether he will be called to testify.
New York Attorney General Letitia James last year brought the suit against Trump, his children and his company, accusing them of "grossly" inflating the former president's net worth by billions of dollars and cheating lenders and others with false and misleading financial statements.
The former president has denied all wrongdoing.
In a court filing Friday, James said that Trump had inflated his net worth by at least $3.6 billion -- a sum far larger than her earlier estimates.
