This lawsuit could be the undoing of Leftist AG Letitia James

Letitia James - New York's leftist attorney general - is facing a potentially devastating lawsuit and legal subpoena. 

The lawsuit and subpoena, according to the New York Postcome from James Doyle, a Georgia businessman, and the case centers around the American Irish Historical Society.

The group has run into financial problems with its mansion, which is located across the street from Central Park.

Doyle, when he joined the club, attempted to help, but things have gone sour, and, now, Doyle is trying to collect the money that he lost.


The Post fills the reader in on the relevant background of this case.

Per the outlet:

Over the years, financial mismanagement and misfortune had befallen the society, and it was facing foreclosure. So in 2017, the board turned to Doyle for a $3 million loan, structured like a private mortgage. He was told that the Beaux-Arts townhouse was worth $80 million that included valuable air rights. However, the society only made a few payments and Doyle soon found things weren’t quite as they seemed.

The Post goes on to explain how the society "reached a crisis point by 2021." And, it was at this point that Kevin Cahill tried to sell the mansion - the same mansion that he was accused of using as his own "private club."

Cahill ended up dying before the mansion was sold, and this is when James got involved. According to The Post, she claimed that because the house was a nonprofit asset, its sale had to be approved by the state of New York - and, ultimately, by her, the state's attorney general.

James then appointed an interim board of directors in the matter.

Doyle's quest to get his money back

As all of this has been going on, Doyle has still not gotten his $3 million back. James told Doyle not to try to get his money back before July 2023, but that deadline has come and gone.

Doyle then tried to initiate foreclosure proceedings, but he was blocked by James.

In response, Doyle has filed a lawsuit against the American Irish Historical Society. In the lawsuit, Doyle accuses the society of having "fraudulently inflated valuations" of the mansion, which may sound familiar because it is the same thing that James accused former President Donald Trump of doing with his assets.

But, there's more. As part of this lawsuit, Doyle is looking to subpoena James. The Post reports:

On Friday, Doyle launched a lawsuit against the society and requested a subpoena be issued against James requiring her to produce a raft of documents, including anything relating to campaign events hosted at the townhouse or any contributions to her political campaigns from the society or any of its members or directors.

Doyle's attorney Tim Parlatore has put out a statement, saying, "Tish James said, ‘Nobody is above the law,’ which should include Tish James, who seems to have actively aided and abetted in the art of the steal." Parlatore alleges that James' involvement with the society may be driven by her "connections with the Defendant."
