Assignment desk: NYC real estate

Spartacus, who looks to be an anonyblogger from what we can see, spins a dinner-party tale about the miseries inflicted on the renovators of a Manhattan townhouse by a creatively entrepreneurial lawyer calling himself "Sue 'Em Stu". Because the key personalities and facts are neither identified nor sourced, the story doesn't qualify as news. It does, however, probably qualify as a lead for some news organization with an interest in real estate, which would have to start by emailing "Spartacus" in search of a trail of names and facts that could be followed up.
