An 87-year-old woman who lost her civil case against Donald Trump says she's glad she took the "Apprentice" star to court even though a jury in Chicago ended up deciding against her.

The federal jury returned with a finding Thursday against Jacqueline Goldberg. The Evanston woman told reporters later she hoped her lawsuit "exposed Trump for what he is" and dissuades others from investing with him.

Goldberg claimed Trump offered her a profit-sharing plan at Chicago's Trump International Hotel & Tower if she bought condos there. She says he reneged after committing to buy.

Trump's attorneys argued Goldberg signed a contract allowing Trump to change the terms.

Asked what advice she'd give others who do decide to invest with Trump, she responded, "Read the contract carefully."
