To Sue or Not To Sue – Episode 139
The United States is a decidedly litigious country, and the EB-5 industry is seeing an increase the number of lawsuits filed against both project developers and the government itself, seeking protection against fraud and misuse of funds, delayed return of capital and speedier adjudications by USCIS. But with concerns about cost, lengthiness and likelihood of success, is a lawsuit always a good idea? On this episode of EB-5 Investment Voice, Mona Shah and Mark are joined by Jason Gottlieb of Morrison Cohen LLP to discuss what factors to consider when deciding whether to file suit.
