Settlements reached in Inniscrone lawsuits

After more than a year of litigation, two settlements were reached in the suit and counter suit between London Grove Township and KTEE & TTEE, Inc., the former management team at the Inniscrone Golf Course in Avondale.

Under the settlements, London Grove Township and its insurance carrier paid a total of $41,000 to KTEE & TTEE, Inc., made payable to Lori and Michael Van Sickle. In addition, the township was required to deliver several items of personal property to the management team that the township had originally refused to allow KTEE & TTEE, Inc. to remove from Inniscrone when their term of management ended at the golf course on Dec. 7, 2011. No payments were made by KTEE & TTEE, Inc. to the township under the settlements.

The tension between the township and KTEE & TTEE, Inc. dates back to the end of 2011, when the township awarded the management of Inniscrone to the Heathland Hospitality Group. In May 2012, the legal wrangling began, when KTEE & TTEE, Inc. filed a complaint against London Grove Township for the return of approximately 50 items, including golf clubs that belonged to the Van Sicle's children; a gold cart; several tables; a golf bag; display signs; a television, a refrigerator, grill, cooler and freezer; various office stationery-related items; and a diamond ring.

In early July 2012, the township filed a 58-page document at the Chester County Justice Center that included a nine-count complaint against KTEE & TTEE, Inc., accusing the former management team of fiduciary mismanagement, fraud, accounting errors, breach of contract and irresponsible conduct, and sought monetary damages in excess of $180,000. After the complaint was amended twice by the attorneys for the township, Judge Robert Shenkin of the Chester County Court of Common Pleas granted KTEE & TTEE, Inc. preliminary objections to the second amended complaint, and dismissed the township's fiduciary mismanagement, fraud, conversion and accounting errors claims. 

Although London Grove Board of Supervisors Chairman David Connors would not offer public comments about the settlement, he said that the Healthland Hospitality Group, the current management team at Inniscrone, has allowed the golf course to "turn the corner."

"The golf course is in great shape and we'd like to invite the public to come out and take a look at it," Connors said.

A representative from KTEE & TTEE, Inc. chose not to comment on the terms of the agreement.
