The American company Trump Organization, owned by former US President Donald Trump, filed a lawsuit against the authorities of New York in connection with the fact that they refused a contract for the maintenance of a golf course after the January invasion of the Capitol in Washington. This is evidenced by documents received in the electronic database of the court in the New York district of Manhattan.
The statement of claim emphasizes that one of the divisions of the Trump Organization has equipped this golf course in the New York borough of the Bronx and was responsible for its maintenance since 2015. This work required significant capital investment from the company.
The plaintiffs note that the decision of the New York authorities to terminate this contract in January was politically motivated and was not justified from a business point of view. As emphasized in the document, the terms of the contract prohibit breaking it “arbitrarily,” without sufficient grounds. The Trump Organization demands to recognize the decision to terminate the contract as illegal, as well as to oblige the authorities of the largest US metropolis to pay compensation.
New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, who is a Democrat, in January, announced the severance of some business ties with the Trump Organization. He explained this by saying that Trump “provoked an uprising” in Washington. Representatives of the company then assured that they would challenge this decision.
