Denlow & Henry sue the City of St. Louis to Collect $2.2 Million Judgment
In 2008, a jury awarded Denlow & Henry’s client $2.9 million for property taken by the City of St. Louis on behalf of a developer. After crediting the City for what it already paid, the owner was entitled to $1.9 million more. The City appealed. After years of appeals, the Missouri Supreme Court terminated any further proceedings. By this time, the owner was entitled to $2.2 million because of accrued interest. The City has since refused to pay the judgment, prompting Denlow & Henry to take unprecedented steps to sue the City in a collection action. The action was the topic of recent St. Louis Post-Dispatch article.
