Hogan administration files lawsuit against State Center developer

In a pre-emptive legal maneuver, the administration of Gov. Larry Hogan has sued the spurned developer of the $1.5 billion State Center project in midtown Baltimore.

The state is trying to force State Center LLC to terminate its right to redevelop the site after pulling the plug on the project as envisioned by voiding lease agreements with the company.

Before a meeting of the Board of Public Works on Wednesday, a lawyer for the developer threatened to sue the state come January if it terminated the leases. The board voted to do so anyway, and hours later state officials filed the lawsuit.

Shareese DeLeaver Churchill, a spokeswoman for Hogan, said Thursday that the state’s legal action is a proactive step “that clearly signifies just how serious the governor and administration are about moving forward and finally redeveloping this site.”
