Long Beach in default in $50M suit

March 27, 2015 – Media Mention

Scott Mollen was quoted in a Newsday story about the latest development in a long-running battle between the City of Long Beach and developer Sinclair Haberman over a proposed beachfront condominium project. Nassau County acting state Supreme Court Justice James P. McCormack recently found the City of Long Beach in default in a $50 million damages case tied to the project. "It is very unfortunate for the city that it had reneged on a 'cashless' settlement agreement," Mollen said. "The Habermans have been victimized for decades by ... city officials who trampled on the Habermans' right to develop their property." [full article available behind pay wall]
