Donald Trump-Branded Building Sues for the Right to Remove President's Name

By TheBlast Staff

A building with Donald Trump's name on it has sued the President's company for the right to remove his name.

The lawsuit filed against DJT Holdings is over the 200 Riverside Boulevard building known as Trump Place. They claim Trump agreed to license his name to the building for $1 back in 2000.

Fast forward to early 2017 when, according to the lawsuit, the building's board of managers discussed the possibility of removing the Trump signage in response to some concerned unit owners.

Shortly after, the Trump Place residential committee says they received a "threatening letter" from Trump's lawyer that he'd sue them if there was "any attempt ... to remove the Identifications from the Building" and claiming it would be a breach of their license agreement.

The committee claims the licensing agreement doesn't force the board of managers to use Trump's name ... it just lets them use his name if they want.

Trump Place wants the court to order that they wouldn't be in breach of the deal by removing the President's name from its building.
