Relations quickly soured amid poor hotel occupancy figures and claims made by Ithaca and other hotel unit owners from financial mismanagement or misconduct. In October, Ithaca Capital led a push to end the Trump international Hotel management agreement and compensation. Trump’s company, which he still owns, but does not directly control — refused the power over the property, with the argument that the vote on the brand Trump Hotels was invalid.
A Panamanian court refused to support that claim in December, and the parties have been fighting in the court.
