Hedge fund manager Alphonse Fletcher Jr. is still tussling with the co-op board at the Dakota over discrimination allegations, and the latest twist in the case has to do with a donation Fletcher planned to make to Harvard. Fletcher had promised the school $4.5 million but never delivered; he now claims the gift was "non-binding." The Dakota case hinges on whether that's true?the Dakota is arguing that they turned town Fletcher's purchase of another unit in the building due to his financial situation, not out of discrimination, and if he reneged on a promised $4.5M gift, that would be a sign of iffy financials.
