Rubenstein PR Sues Private School for Not Paying Invoice
Legacy Business School, a for-profit school associated with the European School of Economics, seems to be having trouble paying a PR bill of $57,000 owed to Richard Rubenstein PR, son of the legendary New York PR expert, Howard Rubenstein. Legacy was previously endorsed by Kris Jenner, who was previously a featured part of their website, though she’s since been removed.
The school only opened in September and is located in Trump Tower. Annual tuition for the school is $82,060. Suit was filed by Rubenstein in the Manhattan Supreme Court. Suits for not paying debts are not unfamiliar to the affiliated European School run by Alessandro Nomellini. There are at least a dozen such suits against them.
