Post Office Could Be Sent Packing After Eviction Suit
An eviction suit filed against the U.S. Postal Service could speed up ambitious plans for redeveloping a huge downtown Milwaukee building. The owner is trying to evict its only tenant, which holds a lease that could extend until 2040. The owner filed a lawsuit in Milwaukee County Circuit Court asking a judge to evict the Postal Service from a building the agency has used for about 50 years. The suit, filed in August, claims the Postal Service has defaulted on its lease by failing to make building repairs.
