In a blistering legal filing, the attorney for two homeowners fighting for the restoration of Ahwatukee Lakes Golf Course has asked a judge to move forward with their contempt action against owner Wilson Gee and pay no attention to a pending appeal request to the state Supreme Court.
Accusing Gee’s company of “brazenly” and “audaciously” asserting that “the golf course does not exist,” attorney Tim Barnes told Superior Court Judge Steven K. Holding that Gee has ignored orders to restore the course that date back nearly two years.
Barnes also asserts Gee now owns the course through a new company that is not a party to the case on appeal. Hence, he said, the contempt action and the pending appeal are no longer related.
