Keep True Life on the hook, Lakes lawyer asks court

The answer to True Life’s appeal brief marks the latest chapter in the long legal fight by two Ahwatukee Lakes homeowners to change what a judge called the “moonscape” that the defunct golf course has become since it was shut down in 2013. / Special to Ahwatukee Foothills News


The True Life Companies knew what it was getting when they bought the defunct Ahwatukee Lakes Golf Course and should not be let off the hook for rebuilding it just because they lost a gamble, the attorney for two homeowners told the Arizona Court of Appeals last week.

In a long-awaited rebuttal to True Life’s effort to overturn a Superior Court ruling that it must restore the 101-acre site, attorney Timothy Barnes detailed the history of the covenants, conditions and restrictions that have governed the site’s use since 1986.

And he took direct aim at True Life attorney Chris R. Baniszewski’s argument that forcing his client to restore a golf course would violate the 13th Constitutional Amendment that bans slavery.
