Atlantic Yards Oops

Last week a judge ruled that developer Shaya Boymelgreen improperly sold his lease to a property in the Atlantic Yards footprint to Forest City Ratner, and now Crain's reports on the fallout: The rightful landlord can evict Boymelgreen and sue the for damages, which exceed $25 million according to the plaintiff's lawyer. Will the guy end up selling to Ratner himself? "My client declined to sell the property to Ratner and has never been desirous of selling his properties," his lawyer says. That won't stop the eminent domain steamroller from passing through if Atlantic Yards ever, you know, happens. [Crain's]
