Azaadjeet Singh, an American Sikh, is suing the Housing & Development Board (HDB) over the Statutory Board's repossession of his Bukit Batok flat for an undisclosed sum of money.
The case was first filed in the US Distract Court for the Northern District of Ohio in November 2015. The case is still ongoing, with the HDB hiring 2 US based law firms based in New York and Ohio.
According to US news reports, Azaadjeet is a prominent council member in his home district of Northeast Ohio.
Singh explained that if the District Court could not settle his dispute with the HDB, he would escalate case all the way up to the US Supreme Court.
