More Queensridge Litigant Sanctions

Last week, I posted a court order ending one of the two lawsuits against the development of the Badlands Golf Course. About a dozen homeowners there have been pursuing court delays while urging City Government to condemn the golf course, buy the land, and save their views.

The city attorney’s office says they have no case under the law, and they each initialed disclosures that they knew the golf course was not part of their purchase and that it had separate development rights. If if City …

Even the city is rendered powerless – the only way it …

The longtime management company for the Badlands course had struggled along by deferring major maintenance until quitting early this year. Some of its employees formed a new management company and took the contract, but …
