according to The ruling is the result of a class action lawsuit that was brought against Trump National Golf Club and its partners in 2013.
NEW YORK — A federal judge ordered President Trump‘s golf course in Jupiter, Florida, to pay former members $5.7 million.
“In other words, we are committed to seeing Trump National Golf Club – Jupiter on the list of the best clubs in the world and if you choose to remain on the resignation list, you’re out.”The Jupiter golf club suit is the latest controversy surrounding Trump and his chain of Trump National Golf Clubs in the U.S. as well as his international courses.
Trump is currently suing the town of Ossining, N.Y., in an effort to try to lower the taxes on his golf course there.
Trump International Golf Links outside Aberdeen, Scotland opened in 2012 and has met with lots of resistance from locals.
according to A federal judge ruled Wednesday that President Donald Trump’s Trump National Golf Club in Jupiter must pay former members nearly $6 million.
Club members sued to get their deposits back after Trump bought the golf course from the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club & Spa in 2012.
“We had high hopes for Donald Trump doing a good thing with the club,” Hirsch says.
But once Trump bought the club, some members say Trump changed the rules and refused to return the deposits.
“Donald Trump even made the comment that he thought it was a great picture,” Norman Hirsch remembers.
according to A federal judge in Florida on Wednesday directed a golf club owned by U.S. President Donald Trump to pay $5.77 million to former members who claimed it wrongfully refused to refund their deposits after Trump took over in 2012.
Before Trump took over, the club had permitted members who wanted to resign to keep playing golf until their replacements were found.
U.S. District Judge Kenneth Marra in West Palm Beach said Trump National Golf Club Jupiter must repay $4.849 million plus $925,010 of interest to 65 former members for breach of contract, following a non-jury trial last August.
But Trump changed the rules, declaring in a letter that “as the owner of the club” he did not want such members to use the club, and telling them “you’re out.”
Marra said the club had no right to keep the deposits after locking out members who had declared their plans to resign prior to Trump’s purchase in November 2012.
