Donald Trump, the real estate mogul and reality TV star, says he’s “honored” to be a subject in a lawsuit brought by about 80 buyers of luxury condominiums who say they’re victims of a fraudulent sales program.

The lawsuit, which does not name Trump as a defendant, claims the developers of the Trump Towers complex in Sunny Isles Beach, Fla. — a partnership including the Related Group and Dezer Development — used the celebrated Trump name to attract buyers. But according to the suit, the billionaire’s name can only be used temporarily and for promotional purposes and may be changed once the units are sold out, the buildings are completed and the developers are no longer associated with the project. The lawsuit was filed Tuesday in Miami-Dade Circuit Court.
