Soundview residents have taken their $8 million suit against the city Buildings Department 'the Bad-Ass Group' of developers to Manhattan Federal Court.
Bronx homeowners who charge that a sketchy developer conned them into buying shoddily built homes are taking their fight to federal court.
The Soundview homeowners are seeking $8 million from the city Buildings Department and from an umbrella group, including developers and real estate agents, that called itself “the Bad-Ass Group,” according to a suit filed Tuesday in Manhattan Federal Court.
The Buildings Department knew what was happening and ignored it, said lawyer Susan Chana Lask.
The city Law Department said it would review the suit.
