Moncton family feud heads to supreme court

A family feud in Moncton is heading to the Supreme Court of Canada.

The Schelew family — four brothers and their mother — are fighting over the sale of a six-storey apartment building they used to own in the city’s east end.

Most of the family accuses one of the brothers — Alan Schelew — of blocking the sale of the building at 99 Joyce Ave., for $2.5 million.

They say they had two offers of $2.5 million, but Schelew, who managed the building for a fee, prevented the prospective buyers from inspecting it and the deals fell through.

The family ended up selling the building to Schelew for $2.2 million, but they’ve asked the courts to make him pay the difference.
