New York’s Dems Rocked By Lawsuit After Madison Ave. Business File Suit Against Cuomo, De Blasio for Riots, Estimates $100M in Damages


Opinion| Just imagine for a moment that you are the owner of a building or store front on 5th Avenue in Manhattan.  You have it made, right?  I mean sure, the cost of entry is high, but all that foot traffic, all those people spending money on the most famous street in the most famous, richest and safest city in the world … you can’t lose, right?  WRONG.

The answer to the question of ‘how could that happen’ is simple: leadership … or lack there of.

Well, actions have consequences, and in a city like New York, the stakes are high, very, very high …

PJ Media explains:

‘On May 29, George Floyd protests in New York City devolved into looting, riots, and arson. Between May 29 and June 9, looters and rioters damaged more than 450 businesses. During that lawless destruction, the NYPD union president blamed Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-N.Y.) and Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) for publicly attacking police and for not sending reinforcements to restore order. Now, at least one business is filing a lawsuit to hold them accountable.

Domus Design Center (DDC) on 134 Madison Ave has filed a lawsuit claiming that Cuomo, de Blasio, the NYPD, and others failed to do their jobs to protect the people of New York from lawless looters and rioters, The New York Post reported. Sal Strazzullo, the lawyer who represents DDC, predicts the case will become a class-action and the damages will reach $100 million.’

“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.” the attorney stated.

“Paying taxes that help pay the salary of the NYPD, we expect protection in return,” Strazzullo insisted. “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.”  Like the attorney’s statement implies, a protection racket only works when you get protection in exchange for the extortion … or in this case that extortion is called ‘taxes’.

Sal Strazzullo, the lawyer who represents DDC said:

“Cuomo should have worried about hospital reform instead of bail reform. Getting a free pass, some criminals were not able to be detained pending trial and now we have looters. Who’d have imagined we’d have to board up our stores? We’re not in Afghanistan. Places like Saks Fifth, Louis Vuitton, Prada, Rolex being bombed out?”
