    A fund that won a $3.9 million judgment in September against embattled developer Kent Swig is seeking to enforce its priority claim on certain of Swig’s assets, and prevent competing creditors who are owed a total of nearly $50 million from getting to them first.

    The fund, affiliated with Midtown-based investment firm RCG Longview, sued Swig as an individual, as well as five of his creditors, to force a turnover of eight assets to repay a $3.9 million debt, a petition filed Jan. 7 in New York State Supreme Court says. In the same filing, the fund alternately asked the court to turn the assets over to a sheriff or put them in the hands of a receiver.

The judgment was signed Sept. 21, 2009, for $3.9 million. The judgment was entered at a time when Swig is appealing a $32.4 million judgment by Square Mile Structured Debt, which filed suit after Swig defaulted on $28 million in loans related to the conversion of his former condominium project Sheffield57, at 322 West 57th Street. … [more]
