ABC News legal analyst Dan Abrams is taking to the courts with a lawsuit against his Greenwich Village condo board after it blocked changes to Abrams’ properties at the building.

The 49-year-old former “Nightline” anchor claims board members have refused to let him combine his two apartments at 148-150 Waverly Place and fought him over renovating an outside gate and garden.

The $2 million suit, filed Monday in Manhattan Supreme Court, also claims the same board members who have denied Abrams “have been permitted to make extensive renovations to their own units without any substantial board review or objection,” according to the New York Post.

Abrams “spent two years trying not to file this lawsuit,” he said in a statement, adding that he “can no longer watch [the condo board] create and play by their own special rules.”

The lawsuit singles out condo board members Ronnie Hirsh and Adam Hemlock, with the two learning first-hand the occupational hazards of serving on a Manhattan condo or co-op board. [NYP]Rey Mashayekhi
