The Trump Organization sued New York City, claiming it wrongfully terminated its contract to operate the Ferry Point golf course in the Bronx.
The city ended $17 million worth of contracts with Former President Donald Trump’s company in February after the January 6 assault on the Capitol in Washington, including deals to operate a carousel and two ice rinks in Central Park. The lawsuit, filed in New York State Supreme Court in Manhattan, says the contract was improperly terminated by New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s administration.
The Trump Organization has managed the Trump Golf Links at Ferry Point in the Bronx borough since it opened in 2015. The Trump Organization said in its complaint that it had fully complied with its obligations to operate the course as a “first class, tournament-quality, daily-fee golf course.” Ferry Point is a links-style, Jack Nicklaus-designed course between the Whitestone and Throgs Neck bridges. It opened for business in March 2015.
The company claims Mayor Bill de Blasio had a “preexisting, politically based predisposition to terminate Trump-related contracts” and that the city used the January 6 events as a pretext to end the agreements. According to the suit, the city said the organization breached a provision of the contract that required it to “operate a course capable of attracting professional tournament-quality events by the PGA or similar organizations.” The PGA of America’s announced in January that it wouldn’t hold its annual championship at Trump’s course in Bedminster, New Jersey.
