The attorney for two homeowners suing for the restoration of the Ahwatukee Lakes Golf Course has withdrawn his request to proceed with a contempt hearing against owner Wilson Gee.
Attorney Tim Barnes’s abrupt withdrawal of the petition to Superior Court means that any further action in the case will depend on whether the Arizona Supreme Court accepts Gee’s appeal from a lower-court ruling directing he restore the course.
Barnes had initially told Superior Court that the Supreme Court case should have no bearing on his clients’ demands that Gee be ordered to restore the course he closed in 2013.
Barnes declined comment when asked why he withdrew the motion.
