Kushner Firm Has To Reveal Its Business Partners By February 9, Rules Federal Judge

Kushner Cos., a real estate company once run by Jared Kushner, the president’s son-in-law, can no longer keep the names of some of its business partners in Maryland private. U.S. District Court Judge James K. Bredar ruled on Friday that one of the company’s subsidiaries, Westminster Management, must reveal the names of its partners by Feb. 9 in an unsealed document.

The issue surrounding the Maryland business has to do with a lawsuit filed last year by tenants of 17 apartment complexes who say the rent prices Westminster Management charges are excessive and illegal.

Several news outlets, including The AP, The Washington Post, ProPublica, and others, filed a motion asking that documents providing the information of the company’s partners be revealed.

Judge Bredar’s decision agreed with the arguments put forth by the media outlets’ motion.

“Increased public interest in a case does not, by itself, overcome the presumption of access,” Bredar’s decision read. “In fact, it would logically strengthen it, particularly when the interest is due to the presence of important public figures in the litigation.”

Though Jared Kushner resigned as the company’s CEO when he decided to take an official White House position sold a number of his shares, he still owns a stake in Westminster Management, which documents show provided him with a profit of $1.6 million.
