    Liens are different than judgments. Quite often in construction there are differences of opinion whether something was in the contract or if it is a change in the contract.
    Also, the debt may be on the GC, and not on the owner.
    A lien just protects a person's potential interest.

    Trump logic: unpaid bills = "completed under budget."

    edit: Corollary: "I don't care what the contract says, I'm not paying. You'll have to sue for it. And if you do, you'll never get any work from any my projects again."

    Yes, it's not a judgement. There's been no lawsuit. The article didn't mention a judgement. It's trump being trump. A corrupt thief.

    Since the election (after already believing the news accounts), I have heard three completely reliable, first-hand accounts (now second-hand in this post) of people not getting paid by Trump in NYC and Atlantic City. Two of them are Republicans and did not vote for him. I asked one of them before hearing his story, "You're Republican, he's your guy. Did you vote for him?" His response, "He isn't MY guy." I said, "I know you hate Hillary. Why did you vote for her?" He said, "I can't stand Hillary, but I KNOW Trump!" He then told me about doing a great deal of work for Trump and not getting paid. These liens are probably tame compared to what he usually does to small businesses.
