Sander Ingebretsen & Wake secures win for Gibraltar Companies, LLC 

DENVER – Colorado-based real estate developer Gibraltar Companies, LLC mounted a successful defense against securities fraud claims brought against the company by Buckley Ranch Loan Pool, LLC. On July 22, the Adams County District Court dismissed all claims against Gibraltar Companies. Attorney Daniel Rohner, partner at Sander Ingebretsen & Wake, represented Gibraltar Companies.

Buckley Ranch Loan Pool was formed to loan money for the Buckley Ranch development project. Through a loan pool participation arrangement, funds were secured for the project. Gibraltar Companies sent a letter to investors within the loan pool, outlining the terms of the project and the loan pool arrangement.

A single statement in the letter, that principals of Gibraltar Companies would personally guarantee repayment of the loan, was at issue in the case. When Buckley Ranch Loan Pool was not able to collect on those personal guarantees, it filed a claim against Gibraltar Companies for violating the Colorado Uniform Securities Act, seeking damages in excess of $1.7 million, plus interest, attorney’s fees and costs. Buckley Ranch Loan Pool claimed that the statement by Gibraltar Companies regarding the personal guarantees was deceptive.

On behalf of Gibraltar Companies, Rohner filed a motion for summary judgment to dismiss the claims. The court agreed that the securities fraud claim was unsubstantiated and dismissed Gibraltar Companies from the case.

“We are pleased that the Court agreed that the statements made by Gibraltar Companies were not deceptive or fraudulent in any way,” Rohner said

Pa. Telecom Company Secures $12.5M Judgment in Denver 

LAW WEEK COLORADO

DENVER–A Pennsylvania-based telecom company on June 10 won a $12.5 million judgment in Denver District Court in a complex debt case involving a Colorado banking cooperative. Judge R. Michael Mullins presided the case.

Pa.-based South Canaan Cellular Equity and South Canaan Cellular Investments borrowed $7.5 million for infrastructure from Colorado-based banking cooperative CoBank, but later defaulted on that loan. Another telecom company, Rowland, Pa.-based Lackawaxen Telecommunications Services, purchased the loan from CoBank and as the new lender filed suit against the South Canaan entities.

At the same time, the South Canaan entities filed for bankruptcy in Pennsylvania. At issue was a counter claim filed by the South Canaan entities, who argued Lackawaxen breached fiduciary duties to defendants and improperly purchased the loan.

Lackawaxen was represented by Charles T. Mitchell of Sander Ingebretsen & Wake and attorneys from Pennsylvania firms Reger Rizzo & Darnall and Vuono & Gray. Representing the defendants was Charles Hecht of Hamil/Hecht, who is deceased. His partner Larry Hamil took over the case into the settlement. The case is settled and defendants won’t appeal.
