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,
allegedly as part of a plot to acquire the club for themselves at a lower price.
The lawsuit contends disgruntled members who are part of Cordillera Transition Corp. Inc. prompted 180 club members to resign, costing the club revenue it needs to operate.
Bob Vanourek of the corporation declined to comment to the Vail Daily officials on the allegations.
