Olympia Capital, a fund administrator in Bermuda that services embattled Canary Capital Partners, was sued in June in New York’s Eastern U.S. District Court for allegedly running a criminal enterprise to take control of real estate companies run by Thomas B. Donovan, Reuters reports.

Olympia allegedly offered financing to Donovan that did not exist and that would have left Donovan vulnerable, according to the civil suit. Neither Olympia’s founder, Oskar Lewnowski, a former executive with Drexel Burnham Lambert, or his attorney returned calls from Reuters seeking comment. Lewnowski was also named in the suit.
