Judge rules Jared Kushner’s real estate company violated consumer laws

Landlord and tenant disputes are a common part of the rental business. However, being the son-in-law of a Republican ex-president means these conflicts will surely be blown out of proportion — is this what happened?

The real estate company co-owned by Jared Kushner, former President Donald Trump’s son-in-law, was hit with a slew of charges by a Maryland judge, Fox News reported. The company, JK2, is 50% owned by Jared Kushner and his brother Joshua Kushner.

Administrative Law Judge Emily Daneker called the violations “widespread and numerous” Thursday in her 252-page decision. She found the company and its successor Westminster Management habitually violated Maryland’s consumer protection laws.

The apartment company that collected on debt is accused of doing so without the license required by the state. They are also accused of improperly charging tenants fees and were purportedly caught misreporting the condition of units. However, there is speculation this was politically motivated.

Maryland’s Democratic Attorney General Brian Frosh had sued Westminster and affiliated companies in 2019, insisting tenants were overcharged agent fees to the tune of $332,000 over two years. In her decision, Daneker stopped short of agreeing with Frosh about the company’s inability to fulfill promises made in maintenance contracts and did not find the consumer protection violations for the entire period Frosh had asserted.

“Kushner respects the thoughtful depth of the Judge’s decision, which vindicates Westminster with respect to many of the Attorney General’s overreaching allegations,” Christopher W. Smith, general counsel for Kushner Cos., said in a statement to the news outlet. The company theorized that these claims were politically motivated since Frosh is a Democrat and Kushner was associated with Trump. The judge did not find evidence of that charge, however.

Jared Kushner was maligned as being the beneficiary of nepotism, but the truth of his success in his role in the Trump administration was something even Politico couldn’t ignore. The major treaties he brokered in the Middle East toward the end of the administration were impressive if not historic.

Being the son-in-law of Trump already made Jared Kusher a lightning rod. These kinds of business disputes and infractions happen all the time in commercial real estate and likely go largely unnoticed. However, Democrats are still trying to exact their pound of flesh against Trump so it’s always a possibility the charges were politically motivated even if there is no smoking-gun evidence.

  1. I quit working at shoprite and now I make $30h – $72h…how? I’m working online! My work didn’t exactly make me happy so I decided to take a chance on something new… after 4 years it was so hard to quit my day job but now I couldn’t be happier…..

    1. Most of us want to have good income but don’t know how to do that on Internet there are a lot of methods to earn huge sum, but whenever Buddies try that they get trapped in a scam/fraud so I thought to share with you a genuine and guaranteed method for free to earn huge sum of money at home. I kept hearing other people tell me how much money they can make online so I decided to look into it. Well, it was all true and has totally changed my life. This is where I started.

      Check The Details……..———>>>> http://www.newapp7.com

    2. I truly love it when people get on-line and brag about how much money they have made by working ON-LINE and the amount exceeds $$$$Thousands every month, and is climbing so much every month, that they will be able to retire within 2 years, depending on how much$$$$ I want to retire with! What these ignorant people don’t realise is that the INTERNAL REVENUE has agents that are monitoring everything that is put on the internet!!!! SLEEP WELL, DUMMY!

    1. I am a conservative, and I also seek the truth. Check out the Kushner family history: they’re as crooked as the day is long. Jared is no exception.

        1. Dennis, Please let us be respectful of other’s rights. She has the right to speak her piece as do you. Just because the leftists are using cancel culture and are racist to shut down our rights to free speech, does NOT mean that we should as well. Communication is important if this country is ever going to get past the divisiveness and STFU of the left.

          1. I must agree with Dennis, there is no reason for someone to speculate or look into something. If there is evidence that Kushner’s family is crooked then give it, if you are just aping CNN or some other MSM outlet then we know where you are truly coming from. I am not going to look something up, and people do not have the right to lie about someone else, there are laws against it. So show evidence or don’t come to the table.

        2. yes i agree! show me the proof!as always the liberals from the mensa club will never reply!

      1. I DONT BELIVE ANYTHING ANYONE SAID BAD ABOUT THE TRUMPS LOOK AT THE HOE IN THE WHITE HOUSE NOW HER AND BIDEN BOTH HAVE USED AND STOLED AND PUSH THEIR CRAP ON PEOPLE FOR YEARS NOW LOOK AT OUR COUNTRY ITS FALLING AND ITS THE LEFTIST IDOITS THAT DID THAT BY PUTTING IN THE LEFT CRAZY I PRAY THEY ALL ROT EVERYONE WHO VOTED FOR THAT TRASH

        1. Ruth ,
          I doubt that many actually voted for them. No person with average intelligence would vote for them. With a rigged Democrat election very few or even no actual votes are needed.

        2. The only good thing about this is their suffering along with us. Can’t fix stupid they’ll do it every time.

      2. Just like the Bush’s, Clinton’s, Obama’s and Biden’s. You can also included Pelosi, Schumer, and Maxine Waters.

      3. I agree. The Kushner family has a long and shady past. BUT, Donald Trump is the most truthful and honest president we’ve had since Ronald Reagan. It is unfortunate that his highly intelligent daughter fell for such a sleazy operator. I’ll not hold that against the family. My own daughter fell for such a-holes, not once but twice!

        Just look at the other side, our current president has a wife that thinks she is a doctor just because she has an advanced degree in education. Considering the horrible state of our educational system I would try to hide that fact.

        1. I must apologize. When I saw the challenges to the aspersions on the Kushner family reputations I fell into that trap because I too had heard the same things. I decided to check it out and found a lot of politically motivated charges and accusations that were all obviously politically motivated by Chris Christie who is highly questionable at the outset. The father ran afoul of the law (Chris Christie) but in our culture the sins do not fall to the son, unless the son is the offspring of the enemy of the all important and self-aggrandizing Chris Cristie. Jared Kushner has my respect now, and my admiration (and jealousy) for marrying one of the most beautiful and smartest women in the world.

    2. If it takes a 252 page decision from a judge, you know it’s biased. The judge could have probably took 5 pages to fully explain the decision, but took that many pages which only shows full bias.

    1. Lol my name is Debborah (Debbie Griffin) Had to say something. Shocked me at.first lol

  2. The Dems are the biggest liars and rule breakers period. If the judge was a Dem too then it will be off to the appeals courts for sure.

      1. How did you come to that conclusion? I did some research and found that she has been on the bench since 2000 and was selected by a judicial selection panel. I could not determine who the panel consisted of or who selected those for the panel. If she had been a presidential appointee (NOT) she would have been named by the RINO George W. Bush or by Billy Boy (the cigar man) Clinton.

  3. Trying to exact their pound of flesh against Trump, so it’s always a possibility the charges were politically motivated; haters!

  4. Same old story, same old song and dance my friend. Charge the Republicans with made up stories and put the whole force of the government behind the lies of the liberals. When the so called democrats get caught breaking the laws, all the corrupt so called democrats in washington d.c. let them off.

    1. Absolutely right Robert..Once again with the sensational
      headlines..YATTA,YATTA,YATTA.!!and so it goes.

  5. The regressives are going into overdrive to besmirch Trump now in the hopes of making him ineluctable in 2024. They are so frightened by the fact their leaders have bent so far left so fast that they have to do every despicable act possible to hold on to what they can.

  6. Why do you all try and tie everything back to Trump. The article and the legal issue are Kushner real estate issues. Note, not the first time Jared, his brother or the family’ have been sued or legal issue brought due to tenant charges, wrongful landlord action or landlord not fulfilling obligations, in various states. So, not political just the way they do business and the judge (non-partisan) will hear the case and wrender a decision. It now is their immediate defense, no matter the charge, that the case is politically motivated. Give me a break!!!

  7. Maryland is controlled by the corrupt Dems. That is the only reason this judge is doing this. Look at the entire Biden Family. They all broke the law and committed Treason, including Joe’s Wife who committed Adultery. Obama, Hillary, the last four AG’s, the Hight Tech Execs, George Soros, Warren Buffet, and every Dem in the U.S. should all face Charges of Treason and Corruption!

    1. I am not judging these buffoons, that’s God’s handle.
      I realize though that it isn’t just about landlord Tennant issues. This is a vendetta, but even though these clowns don’t have any God but money, power, and Satan, the truth will hit them so hard in the face that they will roll backwards.
      Unfortunately it won’t happen until judgement day. A day we will all see and know the truth. It fast approaches!!

  8. Frisch is another Maryland Democratisch Marxist. Screw these people that use state taxpayers money for political stunts. Frisch, like Raskins and all that other communist Maryland trash, like Pelosi should be in Leavenworth. Now they want a “Sanctuary State”. Last thing we need is illegals killing our law abiding citizens, as if we were south of the border with MS-13!
