Shopping center developer liability

Trustees of Hanover Square Realty v. Weintraub

Commercial Law

52 A.D.2d 600, 382 N.Y.S.2d 110 (2nd Dept. 1976)

Rejecting previously controlling appellate authority, an appellate court held that a lower court properly found that a shopping center developer was liable to subcontractors only to the extent of the amount still owed by the developer to the general contractor who engaged those subcontractors but failed to pay them.
