Maryland’s attorney general sues Kushner apartment company
ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Maryland’s attorney general is suing a real estate company once run by President Donald Trump’s son-in-law for allegedly illegal and harmful rental practices, including rodent and vermin infestations.
Attorney General Brian Frosh announced Wednesday that his office’s Consumer Protection Division has filed charges against Westminster Management.
Frosh alleges tens of thousands of current and former residents were subjected to the alleged practices in Maryland.
Jared Kushner, a senior adviser to Trump, stepped down as CEO of the family business before joining the White House. But he still has an ownership stake in the subsidiary.
Last month, the president of the Kushner Cos., said the company rejected a settlement offer from Frosh’s office. Laurent Morali said at the time that Frosh “clearly cares more about scoring political points” than fighting crime.
