Lawyers: Commie Bill de Blasio will have hard time blocking Steve Cohen-Mets deal

I guess the dollar amount hasn't been reached yet between Bill de Blasio and Steve Cohen.

NY Post reports if Bill de Blasio really wants to do this, if he truly is determined to prevent Steve Cohen from purchasing the Mets for $2.4 billion and not just trying to score a few points in a few circles by staying on brand, then the New York City mayor had best hire some darn good attorneys.

Because you know Cohen, just as his fictional counterpart Bobby Axelrod of “Billions,” employs his own damn stable of prize-fighting litigators. A pair of experts in this field agreed that, while de Blasio would possess a chance of prevailing by invoking language in the Citi Field lease agreement between the Mets and New York City, victory would require some significant legal gymnastics and, even if he scored the upset win, Cohen could try other avenues to get what he wants.
