A legal victory for former Bridgeport Mayor Joe Ganim

A federal judge says a Greenwich developer hasn't shown enough evidence to move forward with a lawsuit against former Bridgeport Mayor Joseph Ganim. Alex Conroy is the developer who was going to create Harbour Place. The $1 billion development was to include entertainment, retail and convention facilities.Conroy says the former mayor and his associates snubbed the project and caused him financial losses when he wouldn't hire Fairfield developer United Properties. He also claims they conspired to oust him from the project. Judge Alan Nevas says he finds Conroy's arguments without merit. His lawyers have 30 days to appeal the ruling. A number of Ganim's associates are also named in the lawsuit. Ganim was convicted of 16 corruption charges in March. He's currently serving a nine-year sentence.
