Suits Fly at the Plaza

New York Post – The developers of the famed landmark are fighting back following two multimillion-dollar lawsuits filed against them by separate penthouse buyers within the past two weeks.

Developer El-Ad Properties, which renovated the 101-year-old building to include pricey condos, is countersuing Russian hedge-fund manager Andrei Vavilov for damages totaling $36 million after he claimed he was the victim of a bait-and-switch.
