The church that sold the Metropolitan Opera House on North Broad to Eric Blumenfeld is now suing the developer. The suit claims that Blumenfeld used fraud to convince the church to partner with him by misleading church officials about his finances. The church bought the Met for $250,000 in 1997. It is now worth more than $20.9 million, according to city records, which show that Blumenfeld gained control of the title in February 2013 for $1. [Daily News]
