Raintree Homeowners Association, et al v. Club Corporation of America, Inc., et al
This case arose out of a dispute between the homeowners who resided in the Raintree Planned United Development and Club Corporation of America, Inc. who had a sixty year lease on the two championship 18 hole golf courses, club house and amenities. The case drew national attention with articles in Sports Illustrated, the New York Times, and other national news sources. The case spanned twelve years. Ultimately, the firm was able to force Club Corporation to turn over the two championship golf courses, the club house, and all amenities. The twelve-year legal battle was memorialized by an article written by the Honorable Kevin Dugan, United States Administrative Law Judge entitled Barbarians on the Green. The value of the property recovered for the homeowners in the planned community exceeded fifty million dollars.
