Second Department Reaches the Merits of a Claim Title to Quiet in Case Involving a $34 million Property in Long Island City, Queens
On consolidated appeals in an action for breach of contract, fraud, constructive trust, and a declaratory judgment in connection with a dispute over title to a development property in Long Island City, Queens, the Second Department reached the merits for the Firm’s client in Olden Group, LLC v. 2890 Review Equity, LLC, al., 209 A.D.3d 748 (2d Dep’t. 2022). Modifying the Lower Court, the Appellate Division determined that the Firm established on behalf of its client that the Plaintiff failed to exercise the purported option to purchase the property that it sought to enforce, and that as a result, any option was of no force and effect. Peter S. Dawson and Nelida Lara handled the matter on behalf of the Firm and Mr. Dawson argued the case on June 7, 2022.
