$4.3 million class action verdict in campground case

(Aug. 27, 2014) -- A San Bernardino, Calif. Superior Court jury reached a unanimous fraud verdict and awarded $3,585,000 in damages and $750,000 in punitive damages to 2,500 members who purchased campground memberships and/or paid membership fees to Halo Resorts, Inc. from December 16, 2007 to February 20, 2013.

SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. — After a two week trial, a San Bernardino Superior Court jury reached a unanimous fraud verdict for intentional misrepresentation, concealment, and negligent misrepresentation and awarded $3,585,000 in damages and $750,000 in punitive damages to 2,500 members who purchased campground memberships and/or paid membership fees to Halo Resorts, Inc. from December 16, 2007 to February 20, 2013, according to Globe Newswire.

“In a very unique trial that featured both a jury and a bench trial at the same time, a jury found Halo Resorts falsely represented to its members that it was entitled to charge these fees and concealed the fact that they were not entitled to charge the fees,” said attorney Kitty Szeto with the R. Rex Parris law firm, to Globe Newswire.

  1. Now if only someone would start legal action against Western Horizons for their selling their membership parks and not replacing them – as in the California contract. When we bought in 5 years ago there were approx. 20 parks that you could use your $5,000 – $10,000 membership in. Now there are only 2 that I know of and yet the original owner – Jim Loken has become the partner with the new owner[s} of some of the original parks. It was a Ponzi scheme.
    We Canadian members can’t do anything – what about all the American members – doesn’t anyone want retribution?

      • I bought into western Horizon in 2002 for $6800.00 for a lifetime membership with the use of 20 parks, now there seems to be only 2 parks left. I would like to get in on the law suite against western Horizons. We spent alot of money for the use of there parks and now basically have nothing.
