Media fight Kushners for names of partners in Md. buildings

NEW YORK (AP) — News outlets including The Associated Press filed a motion in federal court Friday arguing that a document containing the names of investors in some Kushner Cos. apartment buildings in Maryland should be unsealed and available to the media.

The Kushner Cos. has argued that the privacy rights of its partners in its Maryland buildings outweigh the public interest in the disclosure, saying the media’s “politically-motivated” coverage of the case puts those rights — and the partners’ reputations — at risk. President Donald Trump’s son-in law, Jared Kushner, was CEO of the company before becoming an adviser to the president earlier this year.

The case before U.S. district court in Maryland was brought by tenants alleging a Kushner Cos. subsidiary called Westminster Management charges excessive and illegal rent. The lawsuit seeks class action status for tenants in the 17 apartment complexes owned by the company in the state.

The Kushner Cos. has said it has broken no laws and denies the charges.
