The city-built Capital City Plaza Parking Ramp in downtown St. Paul has been a disappointment to bondholders for years. It also has been a disappointment to Greene Espel’s client, John Rupp, the developer who originally sold the property to the St. Paul Port Authority and retained a note and option to repurchase the property. On October 28, the Minnesota Court of Appeals reversed and remanded, holding that Rupp was entitled to explore the circumstances surrounding the proposed transaction and the meaning of the original agreements in discovery.
