Donald Trump is doing everything he can to stop a building in Manhattan from taking his name off their signage.
As The Blast first reported, a building at 200 Riverside Boulevard, known as Trump Place, filed a lawsuit to gain the right to remove the Trump name from the building.
They claimed that once they began discussing the move, they received a “threatening letter” from Trump’s lawyer claiming they’d sue the building if there was “any attempt … to remove the Identifications from the Building” and claiming it would be a breach of their license agreement.
In new court documents obtained by The Blast, DJT Holdings claims the licensing agreement that was signed between the two sides back in 2000 “conclusively establishes that Plaintiff is obligated to use and display the Identifications.”
They also claim the Residential Committee for the building had no standing to file the lawsuit and they did not go through the proper channels before filing this suit.
DJT wants the lawsuit thrown out and they want attorney’s fees and cost to pay for the defense “of this meritless action.”
