A judge listened to arguments Tuesday in a property dispute involving a man running for Congress.
Acting State Supreme Court Judge Daniel Doyle heard from William “Casey” McDonald and an attorney representing Sandra Sullivan and Henry William Sullivan III, the latter who is known as Mike. McDonald and the Sullivans dispute who owns a house on Rumsey Street in Seneca Falls.
McDonald, of Romulus, plans to challenge Congressman Tom Reed, R-23 of Corning, in a Republican primary next year.
Attorney David Benz said the Sullivans were the home’s owner starting in 2007, explaining that they entered into a contract with McDonald in 2012 for the Rumsey Street home and other properties the Sullivans own.
“The idea was to (have McDonald) purchase the property based on its value, minus obligations,” Benz said.
Benz said McDonald claimed to pay the Sullivans more than $44,000, plus about $16,000 in expenses. His clients deny those payments were made.
