A high-rise developer and serial bankrupt has been accused of facing a “plausibility issue” over an alleged Auckland property scam.

Ryan Matthew Leggatt claimed property developer Peter Louis Chevin​ fraudulently changed corporate details in an alleged Parnell mortgage hijacking saga.

Chevin, who in the early 2000s developed the skinny Columbard high-rise in the CBD’s Wyndham St, said his conduct was not fraudulent.

The case involving multiple defendants was likely to go to trial, according to a newly-published High Court judgment.
