Lawsuit ends, hotel project begins
D.C. Attorney General Peter J. Nickles said Tuesday that he expects the city to break ground on a convention center hotel in late May or early June now that a lawsuit that threatened the project has been dismissed.
D.C. Superior Court Judge Natalia Combs Greene Monday dismissed a lawsuit by Wardman Investor, an entity controlled by JBG Cos. JBG had alleged favoritism in the bidding process, saying the city acted illegally by negotiating exclusively with Bethesda-based Marriott International to build a 14-story Marriott Marquis across the street from the Walter E. Washington Convention Center.
It was unclear Tuesday whether JBG will appeal the ruling.
