According to today's front page of the Reporter-Herald (RH), Marian Butte homeowners filed a lawsuit against Marostica. According to Marostica its a campaign stunt -- the RH liberally quotes Marostica's spin but ignores the alleged victims who filed the suit. Contrary to the impression left by the short newspaper article, this isn't the first time residents of Mariana Butte complained. In addition to resident complaints, the Colorado based homebuilder, Woodcrest Homes Inc. filed a lawsuit against Marostica claiming he made missrepresentations about the development (it was later settled).
Marostica failed to pay subcontrators, according to the suit filed by Woodcrest Homes, Inc. which left liens on the property in excess of $1 million but he never disclosed this to Woodcrest when they bought the property. Thus Woodcrest calimed they couldn't sell the parcels to homebuyer's due to mechanic liens against the property.
According to Woodcrest Homes;
"Woodcrest has been damaged by MRP's and
representations of materials facts..."
