Developer sues Missouri city for holding up project

An Iowa developer recently sued Kimberling City, Missouri claiming that officials from the city have held up projects to be completed in the city.  Signature Holding Co. of Bettendorf, Iowa filed suit against the city, its mayor and other specified officials in the U.S. District Court in Davenport and seeks $14.5 million worth of damages.

According to court documents, Signature Holding Co. was set to begin two real estate development projects in Kimberling in 2003, Cottage Row and the Fischer Creek Inn and Country Club.  In 2006, after a new mayor and city council were elected, Singnature Holding Co. alleges that they began to take steps which prevented them from continuing development plans.

Specifically, the suit claims that between 2006 and 2009 the mayor and city representatives failed to hold timely meetings, spread untrue information about the development company and two times withdrew formal contract with the company.

What is business litigation?

Infringement on a patent, intellectual property, and copyright are all examples of a situation where business litigation may be needed. Concerns with finances, such as unethical broker behavior,  and investments are also legal issues that arise that can be very complicated to work through.
