An ex-mobster has hit the city of Bridgeport and developer Manuel Moutinho with a lawsuit centered around a nearly 10-acre property on Hart Street. Gus Curcio Sr. is a onetime “reputed member of the Genovese crime family,” according to the Connecticut Post, who spent time in prison for extortion and loan sharking. Curcio purchased the plot from Moutinho in 2004 and claims the seller and the city worked together to keep him from then selling the land back to the city for a profit. Curcio said the site has racked up more than $84,000 in tax bills since he purchased it. [Connecticut Post]
