Judge Gives Disputed Plans to Flats East Bank Project Covered by Plain Dealer
February 28, 2011
Steve Kaufmam’s victory on behalf of the developers of the Flats East Bank project was covered in the Plain Dealer. The firm obtained for the developers a preliminary injunction blocking the architects that designed the project from withholding their drawings. The architects had threatened to hold back the drawings over a billing dispute, endangering the entire $275 million project.
“We are delighted that the court has granted the project’s motion for preliminary injunction, because it now allows the project to proceed in an orderly way without any interference,” Kaufman & Co. partner Steven Kaufman told the newspaper. “This means that we are closer to realizing the vision that the developer, the Cleveland-Cuyahoga County Port Authority, the city of Cleveland and our community has for this project.”
