Lawsuit Could Stymie Plan for Megatower
Raymond Hannigan was quoted in Crain’s New York Business, discussing his representation of landlords Roy Schoenberg and Gary Spindler. Schoenberg and Spindler are battling in Manhattan state Supreme Court to stop JDS Development Group from erecting an apartment tower above the vacant 1-story building they lease at 235 Cherry Street. Although the case is ongoing, the court rejected a motion by JDS to dismiss the suit, suggesting that the court could be receptive to Spindler and Schoenberg's claims. Hannigan said, "the court addressed the facts and legal issues and ruled very clearly Spindler and Schoenberg are a party in interest. It's a solid thoroughgoing ruling."
