Richard Handler Is Sorry You Had to See This

Jefferies Chief Executive Officer Richard Handler said he sued to stop construction of a roof deck across the street from his Tribeca apartment on behalf of his neighbors, according to an e-mail to employees. “I took the lead to help our neighborhood oppose what we know will be a major nuisance and disruption to our lives,” Handler, 51, said in the March 31 correspondence, the contents of which were confirmed by a Jefferies spokesman. “You can be assured we are not going after the city in any way and are only asking for their help in dealing with a huge potential problem.” Handler told employees he wrote the e-mail to apologize for “recent distractions in the media concerning me,” including stories that portrayed him as a “tone-deaf one-percenter.” [Bloomberg]
