Connolly Gallagher Wins The Pike Creek Battle Before the Delaware Supreme Court
On November 12, 2014, representing longtime client New Castle County, Connolly Gallagher’s Max Walton presented argument to the Delaware Supreme Court, seeking affirmance of the Court of Chancery’ s December 30, 2013 decision upholding restrictive covenants applicable to the Pike Creek Golf Course. The County successfully argued below that proposals for development of the golf course are unlawful because the applicable restrictive covenants require a minimum of 130 acres of land to be set aside and held for the development of an 18 hole golf course. On November 13, 2014, the Delaware Supreme Court affirmed the Court of Chancery’s decision.
Connolly Gallagher is very proud to represent New Castle County and is pleased to defend the interests of the thousands of residents of the Pike Creek Valley in this important case.
