As the Sheffield Turns: Bucket's Revenge!

New York's two most dysfunctional developers are back at it, only this time their conflict will be played out in the courts instead of in an octagon. Last month Yair Levy pleaded guilty to the ice bucket assault on his former partner Kent Swig (he got two days of community service?worth it!), and now he's suing Swig over their condo conversion gone awry, the Sheffield57. Levy says Swig "siphoned off" $50 million in construction funds for "personal or unrelated purposes," and then conspired to sell the building out from under him. However the latest Sheffield lawsuit plays out, it will make an exciting bonus feature for the instructional DVD. [NYT; Sheffield57 archive]
