The billion-dollar Bayside resort development at Lake Ray Hubbard in Rowlett, Texas, has been partially held up for more than a year as part of a lawsuit filed by a marina operator. But now, the project is moving forward after attorneys from Fish & Richardson led by Dallas managing principal Tom Melsheimer recently convinced a Dallas state district court to throw out the lawsuit. Melsheimer’s client, Bayside Land Partners, purchased the marina property in 2015, but the operator refused to leave even though his prior concessions contract with the city of Dallas had expired years earlier. Melsheimer, fellow firm principal John Sanders and co-counsel filed a motion for summary judgment. The judge agreed with their arguments and ruled in favor of Bayside, dismissing every claim filed by the marina operator and ordering him to pay court costs. This is a victory for the citizens of North Texas who will enjoy the tremendous benefits of a world-class recreational, retail and housing development for years, Melsheimer says.
