St. John comments on lawsuit against Howard County over parking garage
Jason St. John, a partner and vice chair of Saul Ewing’s Litigation practice, is quoted in this article regarding a lawsuit between a group of developers and the Howard Hughes Corporation. The article explains that the developers are arguing that a garage paid for by public financing allows the Howard Hughes Corporation to charge tenants lower rents, thus giving them an unfair advantage for competing office tenants.
Jason, who is representing the developers, said “Using public financing for the garage violates Maryland’s constitution and the state’s Tax Increment Financing Act. The developers are seeking a declaration by the court that the portion of the public financing for the garage be declared void.”
