After a federal judge ordered documents in a lawsuit over Trump University to be unsealed, Donald Trump renewed his attacks on the judge in the case on Monday.

Trump went after U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel on Friday, calling him a “hater” and noting that Curiel is “we believe, Mexican.”

Curiel that same day ordered documents in the Trump University case to be unsealed in response to a request from the Washington Post. In his order declaring that Trump University “playbooks” be released this week, Curiel noted Trump’s past criticisms of the court in the case.

“Defendant became the front-runner for the Republican nomination in the 2016 presidential race, and has placed the integrity of these court proceedings at issue,” Curiel wrote in the order, according to Politico.

Trump then used the Memorial Day holiday to again attack Curiel.
