The Office of the Attorney General has refiled a claim against Jearlean John and other HDC members, following the purchase of Eden Gardens for $175 million, two years after it was valued at $5 million.

The Office of the Attorney General made the announcement via a media statement issued today:

Jearlean John sues State for $17 million

Former Housing Development Corporation (HDC) managing director Jearlean John is suing the State agency for $17 million following her termination on March 22.

John, through her attorney Gerald Ramdeen, is seeking damages for wrongful dismissal and/or breach of contract of employment at the HDC and “all consequential loss suffered as a result of future employment prospects.”

Having served different prime ministers in varying capacities, John is also seeking “aggravated exemplary damages” for the HDC’s handling in her dismissal.
