Developers head back to court in jet dispute

Prominent Miami developers Craig Robins and Ugo Colombo are slated to head back to court Friday in their six-year-old legal fight over a private jet.

An attorney for Robins wants last month’s $2 million judgment thrown out because of alleged juror misconduct, according to the Miami Herald. The attorney, Dennis Richard, claims three of the six jurors who sided with Colombo did not disclose their criminal records and involvement in multiple lawsuits. Colombo’s attorney says the argument is meritless.

Nearly four years ago, Robins’ Dacra Development filed a lawsuit against Colombo’s CMC Group that alleged Colombo agreed to buy half of a $22 million Bombardier Challenger — but failed to follow through on the agreement.

Colombo then filed a countersuit against Dacra alleging that Robins failed to pay for his share of the aircraft’s maintenance and that he purposely defaulted on the loan. The jury ruled that Dacra did not uphold its agreement to pay for maintenance, awarding Colombo and CMC $2 million in damages. The judge previously dismissed Dacra’s original complaint.
