A temporary injunction preventing the developers of Love Estates from selling any lots in the affluent neighborhood was lifted yesterday by a Supreme Court judge.
The injunction was granted on September 16 after the Hug Ministry alleged that Rolling Hills Development Corporation Limited and Christopher Lleida held fraudulent title to more than 20 acres of land.
Attorney Lucia Broughton asked for the removal of the restraint order because her clients had pending sales.
Justice Cheryl Grant-Thompson granted the application to prevent further financial loss to defendants.
The attorney for the plaintiffs, Sonia Timothy, asked for the injunction to remain in place until the title dispute has been settled.
Timothy argued that the plaintiff had a “very strong case of fraud” based on the conclusion of forensic document examiner Thomas Vastrick, who examined the conveyance.
Timothy submitted, “Following the trial of this issue, should this honorable court find that the conveyance is fraudulent, the title of the defendant is defective. Moreover, the defendant would not be the owners of Love Estates. To discharge the injunction, and maintain the status quo, would be to permit the defendants to further dispose of property that they do not own.”
