State bows out of Trump condo tussle

June 30, 2009 01:38PM

Plaintiffs in a lawsuit against real estate investor Donald Trump and developers of the local Trump International Hotel & Resort won’t have state help on their side. Plaintiff attorney Joseph Altschul last month asked the state Division of Land Sales, Condominiums and Mobile Homes to investigate alleged problems with sales and marketing by developers. But the Trump International Hotel & Resort units are condo-hotel units, and Bureau of Compliance chief Jonathan Peet said state regulators only oversee residential condominiums. That leaves unhappy owners with few regulatory supports.
