Read the judgment against developer Craig Nassi, recipient of a $1 million parking ticket

Last week, we told you about a Denver District Court finding against developer Craig Nassi, who was judged to be liable for more than $1 million in damages for fradulently misrepresenting the availability of parking spaces in the Beauvallon, on East Ninth Avenue and Lincoln Street, to a building tenant, the Club Matrix gym and spa. Now, we offer a look at the ruling itself, a 33-page scolding that repeatedly takes Nassi to task in language that occasionally dispenses with polite legalese in favor of blunt censure. At one point, Judge Norman Haglund writes, "Like many of his documentary communications received in evidence, the Court found him indirect, evasive, and conveniently lacking in memory as to important facts at issue."
