Deer Ridge HOA And First Amendment Lawsuits Favorably Settled – And Other Updates And Info

Deer Ridge Board Acknowledges That I Was Right All Along!

After nearly eight years of denial that my claims were valid, the Board of Directors of Gatlinburg Golf And Racquet Club ( GGRC ) at Deer Ridge Mountain Resort acknowledged in their Board of Directors meeting that I was right all along!  Here’s a quote from their official minutes:

“Review of Master Deed & By-Laws:  ‘Board Member A’ has been reviewing the existing Master Deed and By-Laws. Discussion ensued about the number of votes per condo and the allocation of monthly assessments per condo, as well as other topics.Sales Contract = Property Rights - Even At Deer Ridge Mountain Resort

One day of the next Board Meeting in November will be committed to this very important issue. Board Member A will present a document of proposed changes. since they were called in to question during the Goodman legal proceedings.

It is agreed that there are inconsistencies throughout the document. 

‘Board Member B’  will present various financial scenarios if changes are made. Changes will be discussed and approved first by the Board, and then given to our corporate attorney for review. From there, amendments would be presented at the Annual Owner’s Meeting for approval.

An amendment to the Master Deed would require a 75% vote of approval.”

While they may have not come right out and said that I was correct on all aspects of my multiple complaints about violations of the GGRC Master Deed and Bylaws, I believe that it is very clear when you read between the lines that they knew I was right all along.

Warning To All Current Owners of Condominiums at
Deer Ridge Mountain Resort

While I no longer have a “a dog in your fight,” I still worry about the owners at Deer Ridge being potentially victimized by the Board of Directors as a result of the Board’s possible slanted and illegitimate interpretations of the Master Deed and Bylaws.

For example, based on the above board minutes acknowledging that I was right all along, they imply that they can make any changes to the Master Deed and Bylaws with a simple 75% vote.100% Vote Required For Certain GGRC Master Deed and Bylaw Amendments At Deer Ridge Mountain Resort

Based on many discussions with my attorney, this is very probably incorrect.

They cannot, for example, change the property rights of owners – and this includes changing the Master Deed Percentages of any owners from what is in the Master Deed and Bylaws – without a 100% vote of all owners!

I believe that this is a massive and pivotal misinterpretation that they are going to attempt to get approved at the annual meeting in April.

Likewise, their approach on approval to convert the Deer Ridge Game Room to the Deer Ridge “Lobby Lounge.” is equally ridiculous in my personal opinion. The ballot that was sent out recently to all Deer Ridge owners makes the declarative statement in big bold letters, “A non-vote will be considered a “Yes” vote.”

Folks, that is NOT the way the Deer Ridge Master Deed and Bylaws are written. The board is required to accumulate REAL “Yes” votes and not default “Yes” votes!

This entire vote, again in my opinion, is yet another direct and intentional violation of the GGRC Master Deed and Bylaws.

As I said, I no longer have a “a dog in your fight.” It is now up to you, the current owners, to demand that your board of directors comply with the governing documents of Deer Ridge Mountain Resort.

Best of luck!
