Condo Dispute Ends in Illinois CU's Favor
Cypress Point Developers was seeking $3.5 million in damages, according to the The Quad City Times. The development company said the credit union wanted out of the loan because it had exceeded its member business lending cap and had also missed out by locking in the loan at a lower interest rate than it would have received from other potential borrowers. Jon Fox, the attorney for IH Mississippi Valley in Moline, Ill., claimed Cypress Point's owners knew one of the loan provisions included six-month extensions.
Philip Burian, the attorney for Cypress Point, told a jury at recent trial held in Scott County District Court that the $16 million is what the development company's owners felt they could make from the condo project upon its completion.
