Howard Hughes Corp. Files Lawsuit against Ace American Insurance Co. and Torus Specialty Insurance Co. over Sandy Damage in NY

Howard Hughes Corp. filed a lawsuit against ACE American Insurance Co. and Torus Specialty Insurance Co. for allegedly withholding payouts of more than $8.6 million in the wake of Superstorm Sandy. According to its complaint, filed in New York State Supreme Court, the company said both insurers steadfastly thwarted all reasonable attempts to compensate for losses sustained at six buildings within its South Street Seaport property. The company said water ran into the facilities, leading 'many tenants' to vacate the properties. Howard Hughes said the Seaport development was roughly 96% leased before Sandy and the company is calling on the firms to pay its claims of roughly $8.6 million, plus 9% interest.
