A Wayne real estate agent filed a countersuit in state Superior Court against a former client he claims tried to extort $990,000 from him for his silence and not releasing sex tapes to the media.
The countersuit, filed by Robert Lindsay, was first reported by NorthJersey.com.
Lindsay, a Wayne resident, is accused of using a Wayne home he was hired to sell to have sexual trysts with a colleague, the home’s owners claim in a civil lawsuit filed in December.
Lindsay allegedly used the home to have "sexual escapades" with colleague Jeannemarie Phelan, also a Wayne resident, and, according to the homeowners’ suit, listed their home above its market value so he wouldn’t have to show it to possible buyers. Also in the suit, Richard and Sandra Weiner claim Lindsay and Phelan were filmed having sex 11 times in several locations in the house.
The Passaic County Real Estate Commission is investigating the matter. Lindsay and Phelan could lose their real estate licenses and be fined.
Lindsay is past president of the Passaic County Board of Realtors.
