Bolton Suit Concluded, HLPOA Awarded Taxable Costs

On October 19, 2017, Judge Robert Bennett granted the HLPOA request to dismiss all claims made against the HLPOA by Marv Bolton with prejudice.  These claims related to changes made to 2014 financial statements by the HLPOA Treasurer.  As noted in the HLPOA’s brief to the court, “Importantly, the Brick 2014 statements improved the financial strength of  HLPOA.  All members of HLPOA were better served by a net increase in value.”  The judgement of dismissal preserved the right of the HLPOA to pursue taxable costs against Mr. Bolton incurred by the HLPOA in the course of the litigation.  Taxable costs do not include the more than $15,000 in attorney fees paid by HLPOA members.  On December 21, 2017, Judge Bennett allowed taxable costs of $1,434.91 which Mr. Bolton has paid.  This matter is now closed.
