MOBILE View full size, Ala-- A federal judge in Mobile last week sided with a Baldwin County real estate company and its agent in a lawsuit accusing them of tricking a Georgia couple into buying a condominium property worth a fraction of the sales price. James and Janice Boatwright filed the suit against Carney Realty and Shirlee Poulos, along with several other defendantsThey claimed they were misled into investing in a Plash Island condominium project in Gulf Shores in 2005 The plaintiffs earlier had settled with the developer, the firm that did the appraisal and the mortgage company that provided financing for the $669,900 purchase. The Boatwrights used a civil statute -- the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act -- originally designed to go after the assets of mobsters and drug dealersBut U.SDistrict Judge William Steele ruled that they did not offer sufficient evidence of racketeering events that occurred before the Aug23, 2005 closing date on the property.  Adam Milam, an attorney for the couple, said he did not know if his clients would appeal.   "While we disagree with the court's ruling, we respect it," he said In his 35-page order, Steele noted that James Boatwright was a licensed real estate agent and that he and his wife had invested in real estate previously -- including two Gulf Coast condo units.  "The Boatwrights took a calculated risk when they decided in the summer of 2005 to invest in a preconstruction condominium unit at Sunset Bay," the judge wrote"The market for condominiums along the Gulf Coast tanked shortly thereafter."  (For a complete roundup of news from federal court, read Monday's Press-Register.)    window._taboola = window._taboola || []; _taboola.push({ mode: 'alternating-thumbnails-a', container: 'taboola-below-article-thumbnails', placement: 'Below Article Thumbnails', target_type: 'mix' }); if (pb_page_template == undefined) { var pb_page_template = 'article'; } if (pb_page_template != "index") { document.write('); } MOST READ Active Discussions Down in Alabama News and life Daily briefing »'s Ike Morgan talks about what's going on in our stateListen on: iTunes Alexa Stitcher Google Play Soundcloud if (pb_page_template == "index") { document.write('); } else { document.write('); } /* */ resimg.resimf(); About Us About Alabama Media Group Jobs at Alabama Media Group Advertise with us News In Education Frequently Asked Questions About Contact Us Online Store Already a Subscriber?
