Downtown Milwaukee post office eviction case tossed out by judge

A U.S. magistrate judge has dismissed a lawsuit seeking to evict the U.S. Postal Service from its downtown Milwaukee location.

Separately, USPS is moving forward with plans for a 425,000-square-foot facility in Oak Creek. That project, however, is a replacement for the current USPS facility in Oak Creek, according to USPS spokesman Sean Hargadorn.

The lawsuit, brought by an affiliate of Chicago-based R2 Properties, the building’s owner, argued USPS had failed to properly maintain the facility, breaking the lease and warranting the eviction of the Postal Service.


The two sides did engage in settlement talks, but those reached an impasse this spring.
