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. We bought a membership while at St. David in 2001. Would be interested in any class action suit concerning Western Horizons. We also had paid “Lifetime Dues”. Good luck to us all.
