Mr. Frederick Reeves, attorney for the Orsi family trust that is the first lienholder on the golf course, filed for another extension to delay having to foreclose on the property. A lienholder must file a foreclosure action within 5 years of a default, or they lose their rights. That 5 year time period expired in December 2016, but Mr. Reeves filed for 2 extensions of 180 days each, and has now requested a third extension of 180 days to avoid having to begin the foreclosure proceedings. That extension can be seen below. This is interesting because this lienholder could just foreclose on the property and own it outright, yet they do not want to. What is even more interesting is that the Orsi family are developers themselves, and have built residential property developments before, so are very capable of building homes on the golf course if it were possible and made any sense to do so. But they do not want the property, even though they could get it for free by foreclosing.
It should be noted the Mr. Reeves also represents all of the intervenors in the golf course lawsuit against the county. In the last court hearing the county attorney allowed Mr. Reeves to do all the talking, saying that she and Mr. Reeves had “collaberated”. Mr. Reeves also offices at the same address as the law firm of Hobby and Hobby, who represent the owner of the golf course, and are also a lienholder themselves.Motion For Extension Of Time
