Lawyers argue lawsuit against Holmes Beach

Attorneys for all sides in a lawsuit filed by Holmes Beach property owners Ruth McLean and Barbara Coloney against a board of adjustment approval of a lot-width variance pleaded their cases Feb. 2 before Circuit Court Judge Marc Gilner.

The lawsuit stems from a 2004 decision by the BOA to grant Holmes Beach property owner Frank Davis of 5622 Gulf Drive a lot-width variance to build a four-unit condominium.

According to an attorney familiar with the case, the judge should render a decision within 30 days.

At the hearing, attorney John Shubin represented McLean-Coloney, Greg Hootman represented Holmes Beach and Peter Mackey was the attorney for Davis.
