NEW ORLEANS- The Brennan's restaurant on Royal Street appears to be embroiled in another family squabble.
A New Orleans newspaper reports the Brennan's property was set to go up for auction in an Orleans Parish sheriff's sale on Dec. 13, but efforts are being made to stop the proceeding. That's according to the family's attorney Bridget Brennan Tyrrell.
The listing was the result of a petition filed in Orleans Parish Civil District Court by a company called Leggo/4, which in April purchased the unpaid mortgages held by Brennan's. The restaurant is in debt for $4.1 million and is being sued by Leggo/4 for failing to pay.
Leggo/4 is registered in New Orleans and lists Shawn Brennan as its officer on the Louisiana Secretary of State's website.
