Drabinsky sues Landlord

Mygar seeks $1.5 mil in damages

TORONTO — Embattled former theater impresario Garth Drabinsky and his longtime partner Myron Gottlieb are suing their Toronto landlord in a conflict over unpaid office rents.

According to Canadian media reports, Drabinsky and Gottlieb’s company, Mygar Capital Corp., filed a lawsuit against their landlord, 113 Dupont Holdings, after they were locked out of their offices in May over C$45,000 ($33,000) the landlord claims is owed in back rent.

Drabinsky and Gottlieb have been renting the Toronto office space since 1998, shortly after being dismissed from Livent, the theater company they founded, amid allegations of fraud. Drabinsky and Gottlieb are under criminal indictment in the U.S., accused by the Attorney’s Office in the Southern District of Manhattan of 16 charges of conspiracy and fraud. Last October the two were charged with 19 counts of fraud apiece by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.

Mygar is seeking $1.5 million in damages from its landlord, saying its actions and construction on the building have damaged Mygar’s ability to do business. 113 Dupont has indicated it will file a defense to the suit.

Drabinsky’s office declined to comment. Kenneth Zuckerman, president of 113 Dupont Holdings, was unavailable for comment.
