The Gov’s being thrown a fat lawsuit. The thrower’s lawyer Sal Strazzullo. The damages? He estimates $100 million. Co-defendants: the NYPD, Commissioner Dermot Shea, NYC, Bill de Blasio, the state of New York and others. I’m told that an official Notice of Claim has been filed with the Court of Claims. The claimant? Domus Design Center aka DDC, 134 Madison Ave. The issue deals with May 29’s frightening night when looters, rioters and thieves terrorized our city, vandalized our streets, burglarized our shops.

“Where are our tax dollars going? Rocks, bricks thrown? Glass smashed? Merchandise stolen? Thrown out? People hurt? Millions lost? Businesses destroyed? Lives crushed? Not protecting commercial properties is negligence of duty. It’s looters against New York City and state.
“Paying taxes that help pay the salary of the NYPD, we expect protection in return. Where was the city? The state? Officials failing to protect their residents? Government is responsible to protect its citizens and businesses against criminals who want to do bad.
“Not every lawsuit is for money. This type of suit — about the city’s acts and omissions in failing to control or otherwise restrain violent protesters, which caused destruction to claimant’s retail store — is for a point.
“This will be a class-action lawsuit. Costly. Because the others will come on board.”
A store that was damaged and looted in the #GoergeFloyd riots in #NYC is suing @NYGovCuomo for failing to protect the business. Atty @SalStrazzullo is filing a class action suit & expects to win $100M in damages. He told me he plans to issue subpoenas to get to the bottom of it. pic.twitter.com/0PbFNuVMgE— Kevin R Hogan (@KRHogan_NTD) July 8, 2020
