Condo Board Goes After Rigas

Add an angry condominium board to Adelphia Communications Corp. founder and former chairman John Rigas’ list of troubles.

The board of the Manhattan condominium building where Rigas lives said he hasn't paid monthly charges for more than one year, and it is seeking court permission to sell his apartment, AP reported.

The board claimed that Rigas hasn’t paid his $1,002 monthly common charges since January 2003 and, combined with other assessments and fees, he owes $14,689.62.

The Saratoga Condominium's papers asked Manhattan's State Supreme Court to void Rigas' rights and title to the apartment, to allow the apartment to be sold and to award the condominium all common charges, assessments, fees and real estate taxes due on the apartment, AP said.
