Jeannemarie Phelan, a real estate broker who allegedly had sex multiple times with a colleague in a client’s home, has filed a countersuit against the homeowner.
Phelan is accusing homeowner Richard Weiner of trying to extort nearly $1 million from her or else he would release video of her and colleague Robert Lindsay having sex in the home. Security cameras allegedly filmed the pair having sex 11 times in several locations in the house, according to Weiner’s lawsuit.
Lindsay also filed a counterclaim against Weiner on Tuesday claiming he tried to extort nearly $1 million from the former president of the Passaic County Board of Realtors.
Phelan’s attorney Kal Geist told NorthJersey.com Thursday that Weiner’s lawsuit is “tantamount to extortion” and that, while her actions may not have been appropriate, they did not cause Weiner any harm.
Lindsay and Phelan, both Wayne residents, allegedly used the home to have “sexual escapades” together.
According to Weiner’s lawsuit, Lindsay had the home listed above its market value so he wouldn’t have to show it to potential buyers.
The Passaic County Real Estate Commission is investigating the matter.
