Class Action Suit

Previous Woodlake class-action suit background:

  • WLCCC failed to answer the Class-Action lawsuit that we filed in the Moore County Superior Court on October 23, 2017.
    • The motion filing deadline was 5:00pm yesterday, the 28th of December.
  • Based on WLCCC’s lack of response, the Clerk of Court entered default against WLCCC today, and we also today filed a motion for a default judgment.
  • The next step will be a presentation of damages evidence at a hearing for default judgment. 
  • We will also have to certify the two plaintiff classes, and get notice of opt-out procedures to all class members (being mailed to the "lake owner's" class).
  • What then follows is our evidentiary presentation to the Court.
  • Based on the outcome of our evidentiary presentation, we could be awarded a judgment.
  • This is a serial process and not a particularly quick one; so, don’t expect a final resolution in the near future.
  • The pertinent legal documents are filed here on the Restore Woodlake website.
  • As the legal situation evolves, we will keep the community informed.
  • Read first six documents below, including the document from 19 January, in Moore County Superior Court, approving our Class Action Suit moving forward.
