Shane McMahon Files $50 Million Complaint In New York City Over Problems with His Home

Luxury Living NYC reports that Shane McMahon and his wife Marissa McMahon filed a legal complaint in the New York Supreme Court this past week against their building, Cobblestone Lofts at 28 Laight Street in New York City, the building’s managing agent and several yet-to-be identified design firms and construction groups.

The complaint asks that damages be determined at a trial but say the claim would be no less than $50 million plus interest. Shane filed the complaint because water leaks from various points in his penthouse, which the McMahons claim have caused the growth of “certain toxic, airborne contaminants” inside their living space. The contaminants reportedly gave the McMahons and their three young children severe respiratory ailments.

It has also caused a potential $5 million-plus loss in property value and over $130,000 in damage to furniture, clothing, artwork and appliances. Shane and his family have some personal possessions with them at their current rental home but most of their belongings are in storage facilities at a cost of $5,000 per month. They were forced to evacuate the property and are spending around $15,000 per month on a rental apartment. They won’t be able to return to their home until the problems are fixed. The home was purchased in 2001 for $3.9 million. They began residing there in 2002 but were forced to vacate in May 2012. Shane, his wife and their lawyer were not available for comment.

    Possibly, but somewhere in the middle would equal his net worth which is still outrageous.

    He’s probably just starting high so he can meet them in the middle if a settlement comes.

    Douche-baggery crosses party lines

    Well based on the amount of money in damages he is asking for, they may try some of that stuff anyway. $50 million plus interest is pretty high. That’s almost twice his entire net worth.

    Maybe there were complaints in that time, it just wasn’t mentioned here. I’m sure there is plenty of proof and evidence of damages. When you’re in a loft apartment/condo, an expensive one at that, I’m sure there’s a very slim change it’s their own fault. The fact that they were “forced to evacuate” says a lot.

    Not sure how that’s a right-wing thing, but okay.

  • Shawn OB

    He’s rich, but some people have to know when to buy a sub- pump to divert the water in the other direction of the house from the rain and melting snow. Or the plumbing was faulty, I don’t know if he has the right to sue about that because for 11 years it seems like there were no complaints about it.

    Right-wing d-bags prove it’s not “Justice for All”, but “Justice for those who can afford to buy it”.

  • Seth Becker

    Good thing he’s rich then.

    Affluent People can get justice for things like this. If he weren’t rich:

    1. They would blame him for not making a better purchasing decision.
    2. They would blame him for the appearance of the mold.
    3. They would stall out the lawsuit until after the death of his grandchildren.
    4. They would re-publish every negative article that has ever been run on him.
    5. They would present old rumor articles as “most likely true; some people say…”

    They would also ensure the prices to sue are beyond the income of his entire family lifetime wage expectancy.
