***Update*** The lawsuit has been filed in Hampden County Superior Court, according to one of Northeast’s attorney’s.
Here is a statement from one of Northeast Realty’s lawyers:
We at Northeast Realty are very disappointed that we have come to the point of litigation with Mohegan Sun. We made every effort and extended every opportunity for Mohegan to discuss with us a mutually acceptable resolution of our differences. At every turn, Mohegan refused to engage in any substantive discussions, and finally we felt that we had no alternative but to pursue our legal remedies in court. This is not the course that we would have preferred, but we are prepared to carry forward with it aggressively in order to protect our interests.
