TUESDAY, APRIL 26, 19BB BLYTHEVTLLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE HIN1 Builder to Appeal Windfall Ruling on Ft. Lee FHA Project NEWARK, N. J. (AP) — A New Jersey builder plans to appeal a federal court ruling that his Fort Lee housing project, which allegedly raked in huge "windfall" profits, had violated its contract with the Federal Housing Administration. The ruling yesterday by Federal Judge Thomas F. Meany in the test case involving so- called windfall profits was described as the first of its kindagainst a builder. r — • * Under the decision, the FHA cm hold « meeting of stockholder! of the project—known as Linwod Park, Inc.—and assume control of electing two out of three stockholders. The FHA owns all of the corporation's preferred stock. According to the government, Judge Meany's decision could affect a half billion dollars worth of postwar construction in which FHA guaranteed the bulk of the mortgages, and in which FHA says big profits were made by the builders. The appeal planned by Sidney Sarner, one of the original partners In Linwood Park. Inc.. to the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia would mean a delay in FHA action to assume control of the company. B!( Profit It was the government's contention that Sarner and Ralph J. Solow, another original partner, invested $13,000 in the business five years ago and made a profit of 82,468,821 on an FHA-lnsured loan of $8,875,000. The government further claims that Solow was paid $1,318,000 by Linwood Park, Inc., for his original stock investment of $6,500.. Judge Meany said he would hold off on entering his judgment for the government in order to give Atty. Walter D. Van Riper a chince to file the appeal for his client, Linwood Park, Inc. In his decision, Judge Meany said the company violated its contract with the FHA by: 1. Paying $1,318,000 to Solow without FHA approval. $2. Lending $1,270,000 to two other corporations operated by Sarner which operate business and recreation centers in the housing development. ' 3.
