Former Ratner Partner Sues on Nets Role

One of Bruce Ratner's original partners in the real estate developer's purchase of the Nets has sued Ratner claiming he didn't get what was promised when he laid down his $6 million: a seat in the team's board room. Eugene Greene claimed in a suit filed Thursday that Ratner told him, "You will be the glue that helps run this team." Instead, says Greene, he was shunted aside. He is demanding $20 million. His original investment has been returned.
