A Manhattan Supreme Court judge has dismissed liberal billionaire George Soros’ attempt to kill a $50 million lawsuit filed against him by his former, much younger girlfriend, calling Soros’ behavior towards the ex “atrocious.”
Justice Debra James upheld most of the beauty’s claims against the lefty activist, who allegedly reneged on a promise to give her a $1.9 million apartment and then slapped her around when she complained, court papers say. [...]
The judge dismissed only a fraud claim, ruling that Soros, 82, really did mean to buy the dream home for Ferreyr, 29, even though he ultimately gave it to another gal pal. [...]
He “exhibited violent conduct towards her and hired persons to follow and intimidate her,” the judge’s decision noted.
The case garnered attention last year when the octogenarian reportedly offered $250,000 to Ferreyr’s cousin to stop the lawsuit. In the suit, Ferreyr claims Soros choked her, slapped her, and threw a lamp at her during one argument.
