Our client, a Manhattan real estate developer, lawfully cancelled a contract to sell an apartment building. Subsequently, the buyer under the cancelled contract illegally filed a notice of pendency. The notice of pendency blocked any future sale of the real estate.
In successfully resolving the case, Schillinger & Finsterwald obtained a court award of money damages and attorney’s fees against the former buyer based on the wrongful notice of pendency which had prevented the sale of the apartment building to a subsequent buyer.
