NEW YORK, Oct. 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- A lawsuit was filed today in New York Supreme Court by Felix Sater (INDEX #1010478/15) identifying New York based real estate executive Jody Kriss as being at the center of the $250M tax fraud case brought by his former lawyers, which named Donald Trump and his kids, amongst others.
The case filed today is described in court papers as "..a continuation of a multi-year, billon-dollar shakedown of the defendants by Kriss and his recently-fired attorneys, Oberlander and Lerner."
The lawsuit continued that: "From 2008 to 2015, Kriss, Oberlander and Lerner waged a billion-dollar extortion campaign against Bayrock and others, bringing no less than five near-identical lawsuits against a cadre of lawyers, accountants, business professionals and firms associated with Bayrock. In addition to suing Bayrock and Sater, they sued Donald Trump, Ivanka Trump, the United States Government, a former Federal Prosecutor, now a New York State Senator, prestigious law firms including Nixon Peabody LLP, Satterlee Stephens Burke & Burke LLP, Duval & Stachenfeld LLP, Akerman Senterfitt LLP, and Roberts & Holland LLP, and major real estate companies CIM and iStar, for One Billion Dollars ($1,000,000.00) threatening to expose their relationship with Bayrock and Sater. They also unsuccessfully attempted to prevent the nomination of Loretta Lynch as United States Attorney General by publishing false articles accusing Loretta Lynch of collusion with Sater."
The lawsuit notes that, "Kriss and Oberlander stole privileged and judicially-sealed documents, including a sealed government cooperation agreement and attached some of these documents to a publicly-filed complaint, an act which a Federal Judge described as "very bad and perhaps despicable."
