Kahn v. Portnoy
Citation:2008 WL 5197164
Plaintiff Alan R. Khan is a shareholder of the defendant TravelCenters of America, LC (TA). Defendant Hospitality Properties Trust (HPT) owns real property, some of which it leases to TA. Reit Management & Research LLC (RMR) is a privately owned company held by defendant Barry M. Portnoy and his son. The individual defendants are the directors of TA. Defendant Portnoy is a director of TA and HPT. Portnoy is also the founder and a director of HRPT Properties Trust. On May 2007, HPT agreed to acquire the Petro Stopping Holdings, L.P. for $630 million and TA agreed to acquire Petro Stopping Centers, L.P. The transaction was sorganized so that HPT acquired the real estate of 40 Petro Centers truck shops. HPT then leased those facilities to TA pursuant to a May 30, 2007 lease agreement. Plaintiff alleges that the terms of the Petro Lease Agreement are more favorable to HPT than to TA and require TA to pay HPT above-market rent.
