Harris v. NCC BOD

The matter is set for trial 6/10/11 in Bay County Court. This is 3 years to the day since the matter was filed.


The Case continues against the Condo Assn.-

Feb. 4, 2011
This suit is now into its 3rd year. The costs mount, this is a loser pays all case. As you will see from the below posts it is NOT a case that I will lose, so the Nautilus Cove Condo Association will end up paying for both their own costs and my costs.

FYI: Earlier this year settlements were again proposed by me, Alan O'Neal of Waterstone Resort Realty, LLC chose to settle the matter. The Condo Assn. through its BOD has not bothered to reply, so the suit continues.

Should the Condo have settled, my terms were:
1) A statement from them that the Condo documents regarding rentals of units would be adhered to.
2) Payment of my costs to date of $6,500.

The BOD continues to ignore the matter and shortly we will be going to the depositions and interrogatories phase which will increase costs by at least 200%. This will not be paid by the 3 knucklheads on the BOD but will end up with a special assessment of the 167 condos in order to pay my eventual costs.

For Your Information:

Rules & Regulations at 12.
Use Restrictions, 12.1 Residential Use. "The condominium units ... may be used for single-family residential living and for no other purpose."

Further at 14 Leasing of Units.

And 14.4 Occupancy in Absense of Lessee. "If a lessee absents himself from the unit for any period of time during the lease term, his family already in residence may continue to occupy the unit.

2007-08 Photos for - 2008 Civil Suit

This is a seperate blog to hold information regarding the Waterstone Resort Realty and Nautilus Cove Assn. suit, (Case #08-2529-CA) which was filed by me, a NCC Condo owner (708) on June 10, 2008 in the 14th Judicial Circuit Court in Panama City.

The problem here was that foreign imported employees who worked at the Bay Point Marriott Golf Resort & Spa, 4200 Marriott Drive, Panama City Beach, Florida 32408 USA (Phone: 1-850-236-6000), were being housed by a labor contractor who rented 2-3 of 4 Waterstone Resort Realty condo units at the Nautilus Cove Condo. This was ongoing violation of many condo documents and had been going on since 8/2007 and the matter remains before the Circuit Court in Panama City. Waterstone has since had all 4 of their Nautilus Cove condos foreclosed by Compass Bank and 3 have since been sold to new owners. While the violations are now over, the matter needlessly continues in court.


There is some duplication in the photos shown below, as this is a secondary and holding blog I have been busy with other things and not gotten around to taking out the duplicates, sorry about that.

Van transporting Marriott employees

March 21, 2008 2 Orientals leave from condo 716 (over my own condo) and Black female leaves from 712.

On March 29, 2008 I observed several women workers get into White Ford van Fla Plate G96 4DA with the #3 on the back cargo door panel and followed it while it was driven to Marriott Hotel and Resort in PCB, where the women got out and went into a building via a door next to the loading bay. The women who resided in the Waterstone condos went back and forth to work in this and another van.
1st photo below shows van pulled up by building 7 and loading the Marriott employees, other photos show the van driving to the Marriott Hotel in PCB where the women got out.Posted by Picasa

Labor contractors have Marriott contracts

In a phone call with the Manager of the Marriott I was told that three Labor Contractors have contracts with Marriott. They bring workers to the US to work at various firms, arrange their paperwork, visa's and travel. Obviously they also arrange 'housing' for them, which in the case of the Mariott workers is at Nautilus Cove Condos and is completely against the condo regulations which Waterstone Realty agreed to abide by when they purchased 4 units here:
