Eviction case ends with $103K settlement from Forest City Ratner
Atlantic Yards Report
A Brooklyn woman who wanted to open a day care center in a building in the Atlantic Yards footprint has achived a six-figure settlement her lawyer called a good compromise. Shirley Milligan, according to her attorney, Michael Rikon, had originally been offered $40,000 to reimburse her for her investment, plus the return of her $3000 security deposit.
Milliken signed a lease apparently uninformed that the property was slated for demolition. (Someone--whether it be her or those on the other end of the transaction--apparently could've done more disclosure or diligence.)
