Response to Residential/Golf Course Development Fraud Lawsuit


The developer of a major residential and golf course development relied on Larkin Hoffman to aggressively respond to a lawsuit from purchasers alleging fraud in the inducement with respect to their lot acquisitions. Gary Van Cleve responded to the lawsuit with a detailed letter arguing the legal impossibility of the buyers' position and threatening to seek attorneys' fees and sanctions if the lawsuit was not withdrawn. The buyers withdrew their lawsuit, which concluded the matter.
