A dispute between timeshare owners and a Bahamian resort may raise some interesting issues of impracticability.
Timeshare owners at the Crowne Plaza Golf Resort and Casino in Freeport are complaining that their timeshare points have been frozen and that they have been unable to vacation under the program since the Resort was closed in 2004. The Resort owners closed the Resort—shutting down both golf courses and the casino and throwing 1,300 people out of work—shortly after the place was hit by Hurricane Frances in September 2004. It has not reopened. The suit was filed in July 2006.
