SOUTH BEND, Ind. (WNDU) - South Bend is trying to get its money back from a downtown developer.

The city’s Redevelopment Commission seeks $7.5 million from property developer Dave Matthews. The suit includes the $5 million it gave to the project, plus $2.5 million for breach of contract.

Matthews says the suit should be dismissed because the reimbursement is more than any damages the city actually suffered, and that makes it unenforceable.
