In January of 2013, Maggy Hurchalla became the subject of a SLAPP Suit filed by the Lake Point rockpit people. That’s a Strategic Lawsuit Against Public Participation. It’s something that developers do to shut down public discussion through fear of massive legal fees.
The project originally claimed to be a polo club. Then it claimed to be the key to saving the Everglades and the Indian River Lagoon. Then they said it would sell water to utilities from Palm Beach County to Dade County.
Maggy has loudly and publicly pointed out that it does not save the Everglades or the Lagoon.
At this point Lake Point appears to be claiming that everyone knew that Lake Point always planned to transfer water from Lake Okeechobee through its Martin County rockpit and sell it to cities further south. It seems likely that when sales on rock fell, Lake Point focused on privatizing water from the Lake.
They are suing Martin County because the County is enforcing its land development regulations. Lake Point claims they are exempt.
They are suing Maggy personally for “tortious interference” because they claim that she made the Water Management District and the County ask questions about their project.
Maggy's legal bills to date are $99,026.19. Maggy isn't the billionaire in this story which is why I've developed this campaign to help her raise the funds she needs, and if, in the end there is more money than necessary any extra funds turn into a trust to help other SLAPPEES! Thank you for your consideration!
