I mean it wouldn’t be the first time, right?

Doug Jemal, head of Douglas Development, is one of D.C.’s top developers and property owners. His curling snakey symbol is all over the city, and I recently watched him in action, as he purchased an auction property located on Wisconsin Ave. The guys got cojones! But enough cojones to mess with Metro?

The Washington Examiner is reporting that Metro is asking Jemal to pony up $11 million.

“The suit filed in U.S. District Court in Maryland accuses Jemal’s Fairfield Farms LLC, a company run by Douglas Jemal, of piling soil on a corner of its property near the tracks in Prince George’s County. The transit agency says the weight caused the ground to shift under the track supports between the Cheverly and Deanwood stations.”
