Banneker Ventures Sues D.C.
Banneker Ventures has filed suit against the District of Columbia, online court records show.
Attorney General Peter Nickles said the suit was in response to the D.C Council's refusal to honor a settlement between the city and Banneker over cancelled park contracts. (But since Nickles negotiated the settlement without telling the council, which irritated lawmakers, it's not exactly a surprise that he blames the council for what came next.)
Banneker is owned by Mayor Adrian Fenty's frat pal Omar Karim and is at the heart of a council investigation into alleged corrupt contracting practices by Fenty's administration.
LL will update after he pulls the file. Unless the thunderstorms wash the courthouse away.
