Manhattan Club Lawsuit

Has Manhattan Club added interest to amount owed? That was the information we were told.

I contacted the New York Attorney General. This is what I received.... Good Afternoon, I am replying to your email dated 6/25/2016. There is no class action suit against The Manhattan Club. There are motions pending in court – this is normal and in fact commonly occurs in investigations. Court filings are publicly available on NYCourts.gov. To obtain court records concerning this investigation, I recommend that you search “e-courts” by the index number assigned by the court: 451536/2014. While we cannot comment on the nature of this office’s investigation, we can confirm that it is ongoing. __________________________________ Janice Santora | Law Department Document Specialist Real Estate Finance Bureau Office of the New York State Attorney General 120 Broadway, New York, NY 10271-0332 ' 212-416-8757 | 7 212-416-8179 * Janice.Santora@ag.ny.gov http://www.ag.ny.gov/bureau/real-estate-finance-bureau To receive updates from the Bureau, click HERE

Thank you, Donna. This is the first concrete information I get on the case.

So there is no class action suit that is being brought by a private attorney? I thought the attorney , Mr. Lowell (perhaps that's his name) has filed a class action law suit and other owners are joining. Can someone advise the status of that case? When I heard from the Manhattan Club accounting office, I briefly discussed the ongoing investigation and was told that this had been dragging on for over 2 years and it was because the A. G. could find no wrong doing ( right, I thought to myself). Further she pointed out to me that the most damaging allegation regarding overselling of the time shares had been dismissed and that the M. Club felt sure this investigation was going no where and would soon be dropped.

tulip blossom: apparently Attorney Lowell has FILED to establish a class action suit. This FILING needs to be acted upon by the court to agree to RECOGNIZE the there is a CLASS (defined somehow).... and ACCEPT the filing as an actual case. Then theoretically with Lowell reaches out to find all who are a part of the CLASS that the court desides upon. Only time will tell if & how long it will be before an actual Class Action suit begins. What the NYSAG is doing relates to TMC breaking NYS law, regs etc... What the remedy would be if the AG wins everything is unknown.

that's about how this case has been since its inception..........NO (OR VERY LITTLE OF ANY CONSEQUENCE) INFORMATION TO HELP OWNERS MAKE FINANCIAL OR OTHER DECISIONS RE TMC. that's why i'm pushing for another meeting in nyc (as prepared by jeff weir last august and others so well)...............but this time, have either the NYSAG or a professional rep from his office address the TMC OWNERS in attendance at the meeting specifically about the lawsuit. what we're in dire need of is first-hand information from those directly involved in the case.

there is a form published by the NYSAG on his weekly informational website, to request a presentation from his office. i sent the form to jeff weir, greg crist and irene smalls earlier this week. i believe i received a response only from jeff weir. i also had the form published in this redweek.com forum with no response seen from any owners.

i'd like to see some feedback in this redweek.com MC forum regarding other owners' reactions to having another meeting. it's my opinion that we'd have to have a larger venue to accommodate the number of owners wanting to attend if we could get the NYSAG'S staff to address our poorly informed group of owners. to date we remain in an uninformed suspended state concerning this lawsuit which impacts all owners of THE MANHATTAN CLUB.

looking forward to seeing some reactions from all of my fellow owners.

thanks.

there is no lawsuit...only an investigation...and if there ever is a lawsuit, it will hinge on the outcome of the investigation

Hi Chris -- My feedback! Yes, I am very much interested in another Owners' meeting to receive a live update from those leaders in the know, I live in California and could not make the 2015 meeting but it was recorded and available on this website. I've listened to all three recordings and they were instrumental in my decision to pay my maintenance fees. I have reservations at TMC this Aug 2, 3, & 4 (checkout on 5th) and would love to meet up with anyone interested in this forum and will be in NYC at that time. I chose these dates because I plan on attending the Annual meeting. I hope ALL of us owners will think constructively and collaborate in a positive way to resolving all the legal issue surrounding this debacle.

Please let us know when the moratorium can be lifted and we can sell our weeks. Does the investigation need to be closed for the AG to lift the moratorium?

jill, YES, YES, YES............let's pump up the momentum for having another meeting here in nyc similar to, if not larger than, the meeting in august of last year. that being said, it is imperative for us (or the meeting planners such as jeff weir and others) to persuade the NYSAG OR HIS REP to address us at this meeting. if the AG agrees to present an informative address to us, chances are magnified that we'll have an overflow crowd at this meeting that would support his court case against THE MANHATTAN CLUB. a Q/A segment shoud be available at the conclusion of the AG'S presentation.

LET'S GET THE PLANS FOR THIS NYC MEETING STARTED IMMEDIATELY so that owners from distant states (and perhaps countries) can make plans to attend in NYC this year. OUR OWNERSHIP AT THE MANHATTAN CLUB IS AT STAKE, AS WELL AS FAIR TREATMENT BY THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS HEADED BY IAN BRUCE EICHNER.

So Chris, where was the last one held? One of the attorneys with an office should offer a meeting venue - office or conference room or center. All I could organize is a small group in TMC lobby.

DEAR FELLOW MANHATTAN CLUB OWNERS,

THIS IS WHAT'S CALLED BEING PROACTIVE:

Did You Know... You could request a presentation from the Attorney General's Office by submitting an online request? Check out our online Presentation Request Form. Your family, friends, and colleagues could sign up for this newsletter here? You could file a complaint using our online forms? Consumer Fraud Complaint Price Gouging Complaint Internet Bureau Complaint Heathcare Complaint Loan Modification Scam Medicaid Fraud or Nursing Home Patient Abuse & Neglect Contact Us Have a question, comment, or complaint? Click here. You can also learn more about the various initiatives of the Attorney General's office by visiting our website at ag.ny.gov. You can also call our General Hotline: 800-771-7755. the above is taken directly from the NYSAG'S website.

THE AG'S PRESENTATION (if he agrees with our request for one) could be the major attraction at another OWNERS' MEETING this year, such as the successful one we had last august 2 in nyc. we could possibly get many much-needed answers to our several questions about our current positions in THE MANHATTAN CLUB OWNERSHIP and about the progress of the NYSAG'S lawsuit against EICHNER AND THE MANHATTAN CLUB. this is a positive, proactive step in the right direction. the alternative is to remain helpless victims of fraud, scamming and financial disaster perpetrated by the principals of TMC.

let's all jump on the bandwagon: request the assistance of planners like jeff weir and greg crist to get involved in the preparation of another TMC owners' meeting such as the one they did so well in planning for last year. with the NYSAG as the main attraction, i suspect that many more owners from farther distances will travel to nyc to attend this meeting.

we need to be persistent and scrappy as ALEXANDER HAMILTON, AND NOT GIVE UP OUR SHOT (as potential winners concerning the outcome of the current lawsuit).

(fyi, no i haven't seen HAMILTON yet.......the ticket prices are, like our TMC maintenance fees, WAY TOO EXPENSIVE...but for now i settled for the libretto and the cd; therefore, i use the phrasing in the above paragraph to describe what our stance should be concerning the overall TMC situation.)

see you on broadway!

keep in touch.

jill, the last MC OWNERS' MEETING WAS ON AUGUST 2, 2015 in chelsea, nyc in an attractive masonic temple venue. it was a meeting that was well-planned by jeff weir (reporter for redweek.com) and his co-planners. they did a super job with all of the arrangements, including delicious "munchies." there was an attorney present, but at the time, he didn't appear to have definitive answers to many of the owners' questions. with the NYSAG (or his representative) present offering a presentation referencing THE LAWSUIT AGAINST EICHNER AND TMC, we might come away with answers that would help owners make better-informed decisions concerning their ownership in THE MANHATTAN CLUB.

your offer to "organize..... a small group in TMC lobby" is generous but really insufficient to make an impact on our sad situation. what we need is STRENGTH IN NUMBERS. i believe we could draw many owners, even from distant locations, to a meeting in nyc very soon, if we were able to ensure the presence of the NYSAG.

i'm hoping those who so aptly organized the last meeting will do so again this summer, having the NYSAG present as our special feature and service to all TMC OWNERS.

we need all members of this redweek.com forum to support the idea of having another meeting in nyc this summer. i'm hoping more of us will come forward to help in this much-needed effort. GET INVOLVED TO HELP SAVE YOUR OWNERSHIP POSITIONS IN THE MANHATTAN CLUB, including lowering maintenance fees and making reservation time more flexible/available/

keep in touch.

hope to see you all this summer somewhere in NYC (to most, the GREATEST CITY IN THE WORLD!)

yes, vivian: to "facilitate such a meeting" you can reach out to jeff weir and greg crist to start using their super planning skills to create another meething in nyc..... WITH THE NYSAG doing an informative presentation about our plight with THE MANHATTAN CLUB and the current lawsuit. encourage others in this forum to become more proactive in giving this meeting plan some momentum by telling other owners to support the meeting (for sometime this summer.) all owners need to climb on this bandwagon strongly endorsing such a meeting. thanks for your support.

keep in touch,

chris

ps: i believe this tentative meeting would be even better-attended than last august's IF THE NYSAG would agree to offer a presentation with a Q/A session to follow at our meeting.

If the facilitators of a meeting of this sort could also set it up as a webinar it might increase participation by owners who are unable to travel to the meeting.

lee, by all means, a webinar is a viable and outstanding idea which should be considered. however, i'm hoping to increase the actual number of attendees at the OWNERS'MANHATTAN CLUB MEETING exponentially as a show of strength and leadership on our part. the NYSAG'S attendance and presentation at this meeting is almost a guarantee that our gathering will be overflowing even though it would involve many of us owners having to travel a long distance (a plus if they'd love spending the usual fantastic time doing their own 'THING" in nyc.....before and/or after the meeting.)

i hope to see and meet many bilked, scammed and defrauded owners at this meeting. the last meeting we had was fine; let's make the NEXT ONE even better. appeal to jeff weir and greg crist asap. they've proven themselves to be excellent facilitators and planners.

hope to see may of you this summer.

keep in touch.
