Tis the Season for Lawsuits: Trump's Latest

New, 8 comments

"We have nothing but trouble with this town," said [Donald] Trump. That's an excerpt from a Daily Breeze story about Trump's latest lawsuit against Rancho Palos Verdes, a $100 million suit that alleges "the city and its geologic advisers engaged in 'willful, wanton, malicious, oppressive and outrageous' acts that prompted him to 'spend millions of dollars on unnecessary, repetitive, unreasonable and unlawful geologic and geotechnical studies and reviews.'" The suit is just the latest in a very long series of legal battles between the Donald and the city--this latest suit has to do with the construction of 20 homes and amenities at Trump National Golf Club. (Yesterday, Trump also sued the NJ state Gaming Control Board yesterday over a denied casino license.) It sounds everyone is yawning at this latest suit. Via KTLA: "City officials say Trump has sued before, and that they're not taking this latest suit too seriously." According to the Palos Verdes Pennisula News, the case is VH Property Corp. v. City of Rancho Palos Verdes; the summary is after the jump.
