Was there ever any question?

County judge Marc Shumacher threw out the Grove Bay lawsuits. It always comes out on the side of the developers, politicians and groups with money. It was really no surprise. even though the majority of Grove voters voted against the project. The Grove Bay project is the project going in at the former Scotty's Landing and Chart House location.

There will be an appeal.

Not so quick. The jury's not in, so to speak. Lawsuits have many (dormant) lives, like cats. Generally speaking all U.S. law in all jurisdictions including our wonderful, beautiful and colorful Banana Republic has law and order. These properties are being watched and examined closely and in the end every effort will be made to find a balance for most, if no all interested parties - - - - thanks to American, U.S. Law!

The City of Miami can't say no to the developers and so we end up with a cluttered waterfront with few ways to access the bay for recreation.

South Florida needs more communities like Stuart Florida that turn away developers. Stuart doesn't allow chain stores in their downtown and During last decade's real estate boom they turned away developers while St Lucie county grew out of control. Even northern Palm Beach county seems to develop at a more controlled pace than Miami.

We should all unite as true Grovites and fight this. We've only lost one legal battle, not the war. Sledge.

Isn't that the way democracy works, put it out to vote, if you don't like the outcome burden the legal system...

Every aspect of LIFE, to one degree or another is a burden. Laws and lawsuits are just light pieces of paper that someone reads; not much burden here.
Throwing out the Grove Bay lawsuit has nothing to do with the majority of Grove voting against the project. Throwing out the suit for technical reasons means nothing. Hopefully they'll get in right next time.
