As Kurt and I were progressing through the CCCL permitting process, the Town and Florida Audubon decided that a requirement of the CCCL application is that the applicant has to have proof of ownership of the property. So their lawyer filed another lawsuit to force The State of Florida and Kurt and I to prove who owned the property.
I would like to point out a few things of interest here, to file a lawsuit you either have to be in a position to gain something or to lose something. Since Florida Audubon nor the Town stood to gain or lose anything regarding land ownership, we, along with the FDEP, requested the Judge to dismiss the suit.
Are you seeing a pattern about how the FDEP steps in for our defense?
And, something everyone should be made aware of is that Kurt and I leased the land on the other side of the water feature from the State. We have a signed and executed lease. Leases, as many may know, typically give the tenant ownership rights to the leased property with the exception of being able to sell it, of course.
The Town and Florida Audubon refused to let this go, as they continued to attempt to enter the ownership issue into the State hearing without success.
