Won a Week-Long Injunction Trial Allowing the Most Significant Public Development Project In Cleveland in 30 Years to Proceed

July 26, 2011

In the most significant Cleveland public development project in 30 years, Steve Kaufman as co-trial counsel won a TRO permitting the $275 million financing to close and then won a week-long trial, obtaining a preliminary injunction against the architectural firm who tried to block the $275 million Flats East Bank redevelopment project in a dispute over the ownership of the project drawings. A state court judge found that the developer had the right to maintain ownership of and use the drawings, and that not recognizing this right would irreparably harm the developer, the project, and the Greater Cleveland area.
