Supreme Court Declines to Hear Perelman Case


The New Jersey Supreme Court has declined to hear Ronald Perelman’s appeal in his long-running legal battle against the Hudson News family.

In 2008, Perelman filed suit against Hudson News patriarch Robert Cohen, claiming his ex-wife, Claudia Cohen, was orally promised half of the business.  Claudia Cohen died in 2007 while her father died in 2012, leaving the business to his son James Cohen.

A state appellate court affirmed a lower court’s ruling that Perelman’s claim was frivolous.
