DescriptionThere was a time when brassy letters spelling "Trump" had money-making allure. But now the board of a 376-unit luxury condominium tower on Manhattan's West Side is asking a court to declare that it has the right to yank President Donald Trump's name off the building if enough residents decide they don't like his politics.

The condominium board for the 48-story building overlooking the Hudson River filed a lawsuit last week in state court against DJT Holdings LLC, a company controlled by the Trump family.

In a letter to the condominium board last spring, Trump Organization attorney Alan Garten warned that removing Trump's name from the building would constitute a "flagrant and material breach of the license agreement."
