Bruce Levenson and his fellow former owners of the Atlanta Hawks NBA franchise will make their way to the Superior Court of Fulton County in a bid to bring to a close an insurance claim dating back to April 2015. According to ESPN news, the claim made by the Atlanta Hawks Basketball and Entertainment LLC group who owned the NBA franchise until the June 2015 sale to billionaire technology executive Tony Ressler relates to the mutual termination of the contract of former General Manager Danny Ferry; Levenson’s attorney’s have revealed they believe the workplace insurance policy was triggered as early as April 2015 when the first discussions were held between insurance giant AIG and Levenson’s legal team.
In recent years, the focus of Bruce Levenson has switched away from the business success he has achieved as the co-founder of the United Communications Group and founder of the GasBuddy app; instead, Levenson has become even more dedicated to his charitable works that take up much of his time. In a bid to make sure communities are given a high level of support for the future the Levenson family played a major role in raising funds for the School of Philanthropy (http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/undergrads-and-graduate-students-mastering-philanthropy-300038081.html) and Non Profit Leadership at The University of Maryland. The school initially focused on bringing new community leaders to the state of Maryland and has now developed a global approach that sees programs developed across areas of India and Africa by students.
The insurance claim made by Bruce Levenson that will be heard in the Fulton County Superior Court will have no effect on the work of the current owners of the NBA franchise. Bruce Levenson hopes to bring down the curtain on his ownership of the franchise with a final victory over an insurance claim his attorney’s feel should have been a simple one to complete.
