Maryland AG files lawsuit against Kushner Companies real estate company

(CNN)Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh filed a lawsuit on Wednesday against Kushner Companies Westminster Management LLC and 25 property owners alleging illegal and harmful rental practices, according to a release from the attorney general’s office.

“We’re charging that Westminster and the rental property owners in this case took advantage of consumers, primarily low- and middle-income families, collecting fees and other unlawful costs from them and often failing to make the repairs needed to maintain suitable environments for their tenants,” Frosh said in the release.
Kushner Companies belongs to the family of Jared Kushner, President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and a senior White House adviser.
The lawsuit comes after Kushner Companies rejected a settlement offer from Maryland last month.
