Dispute over posh Cordillera Club lands in court

EAGLE, Colo. (AP) - A dispute over control of the exclusive Cordillera Golf Club residential golf community in Edwards has landed in Eagle County District Court.

Owner David Wilhelm filed a lawsuit Tuesday seeking at least $96.5 million in damages. The suit says that after club management told members of a looming budget shortfall during tough economic times last year, disgruntled Cordillera members and homeowners urged other members to withhold dues and boycott facilities,

Bob Vanourek of the corporation declined to comment to the Vail Daily officials on the allegations.
