Wednesday - 3/27/2013, 6:42am  ET

Developer Banneker Ventures is suing D.C. Council member Jim Graham in connection with a disputed Metro real estate deal on Florida Avenue NW that Graham was involved in during his tenure on the transit agency's board of directors, The Washington Post reported.

Banneker alleges that Graham, D-Ward 1, illegally interfered in the company's effort to build a residential and retail development on Metro-owned land in Shaw.

Filed Monday in federal court in the District, the suit also names a competing developer and Metro as defendants and seeks $100 million in compensatory damages.
