Suzuki sprung

From The Real Deal:

Embattled landlord Sam Suzuki was released from Manhattan Detention Complex on Friday after spending more than three weeks behind bars for refusing a judge's order.

A Bronx Housing Court judge ordered him behind bars on civil contempt charges for not making necessary repairs at 1585 East 172nd Street in the Bronx. He surrendered on June 24 and was released Friday, the city Department of Corrections website shows.

Hunter Property said in a statement that the firm was not the owner of the building, but was only its manager, and that management has now been changed.

"The courts wanted the names of the owners and investors of this property, but Mr. Suzuki would not disclose the information," the statement said.
