BALTIMORE - A judge in Maryland has ruled that an apartment company co-owned by Jared Kushner, former President Donald Trump’s son-in-law, repeatedly violated state consumer protection laws by collecting debts without required licenses, charging tenants improper fees and misrepresenting the condition of rental units.

Administrative Law Judge Emily Daneker said in her 252-page decision Thursday that violations by Westminster Management and the company JK2 were “widespread and numerous,“ the Baltimore Sun reports.

Kushner and his brother, Joshua, each held 50% interest in JK2. Westminster is the company’s successor.

Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh, a Democrat, sued Westminster and 25 related companies in 2019, claiming they took advantage of financially vulnerable consumers in the Baltimore area.

The judge ruled tenants often were misled about apartment conditions and were not allowed to see their actual apartments until their move-in days.

Daneker found Westminster charged illegal fees thousands of times over the course of more than two years, such as wrongly charging more than $332,000 in agent fees.

“These circumstances do not support a finding that this was the result of isolated or inadvertent mistakes,” the judge wrote.

Crookedness is a family affair in the Kushner household.

Not surprising at all considering the family history.

Jared isn't squeaky-clean?  I'm shocked.
