The ongoing refusal by the City of Louis to honor a $2.2 Million judgment reached national news, as Robert Denlow and the property owner was interviewed during Fox News’ “Fox & Friends” show on May 26.
The judgment was entered in 2008, when 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.
