Harry Macklowe sues former son-in-law, Swig

Developer Kent Swig’s estranged in-laws filed suit in Manhattan Supreme Court, seeking repayment of $200,000 they claim to have loaned him in October 2009, the New York Daily News reported.

Swig was previously married to Elizabeth Macklowe, Harry’s daughter, but rumors began to swirl in March 2010 that the romance had gone south. According to an affidavit filed by Harry Macklowe’s lawyer, who was not named, he has been seeking repayment for the loan since March 2010.

An anonymous source close to Macklowe said the suit is related to what he or she called the “acrimonious” ongoing divorce divorce proceedings. Swig is no stranger to legal tussles.

When The Real Deal asked Billy Macklowe, Elizabeth’s brother, about his relationship with Swig in the March issue, he was fairly succinct: “Do you know the difference between in-laws and outlaws? Outlaws are wanted.” [NYDN, last item]
