Attorney General Eric Schneiderman’s office has asked a judge to enforce a contempt order against a Long Island condominium developer who quietly filed for personal bankruptcy the night before the judge ordered him to pay a $215,000 judgment.

Schneiderman sued Richard Mohring, developer of the 37-unit Cambridge Park condo in Williston, N.Y., and his wife, Deborah, for failing to fix a crumbling retainer wall at the complex, located at 711-725 Willis Avenue. The judge ordered him to pay the fine within 72 hours or face jail time

Mohring’s lawyer asked state Supreme Court Judge Manuel Mendez to stop the clock on the payments in order for the bankruptcy case to proceed, and thus far no payment has been made, according to regulatory sources familiar with the case. Assistant state AG Serwat Farooq told the judge that the AG’s office would pursue Mohring’s arrest and imprisonment, according to a letter obtained by The Real Deal.

In his Chapter 13 bankruptcy filing Mohring’s only unsecured debt was a $700 Visa bill. However, he was issued a notice for a deficient filing, which means he did not include necessary financial information to justify going bankrupt. His lawyer Scott Schneider did not return calls.
