Washington, Dec 22 (ANI): Real-estate tycoon Donald Trump has sued a small city outside of Los Angeles for not letting him revamp his world-class golf course in the suburb.
Trump filed a 100million-dollar lawsuit against the city of Rancho Palos Verdes for fraud and civil rights violations.
He alleged that his intentions to improve the facility and maintain the “Trump image” had been blocked.
Improvements planned in the restructuring included a clubhouse terrace and a row of ficus trees.
“I”ve been looking forward for a long time to do this. The town does everything possible to stymie everything I do,” Contactmusic quoted him as telling Mercury News.
However, the city’’s mayor, Larry Clark, has dismissed the charges.
“We have bent over backwards many, many times to work with Donald Trump. I”m sure this lawsuit is really going to anger a lot of the residents, he said. (ANI)
