Greentex Inc.
The bank sought the temporary in junction after the elderly residents of Green Gate Grove Resort refused Dominguez' earlier restraining order that they leave the trailer park The bank cut off water in the park but the 32 residents still would not leave The bank contends the residents' purchase of an agreement from Haddad to occupy a spot in the park was voided when the bank bought the land last year
Attorneys for the bank told the cowl last week that Haddad owed Texas Commerce $15 million and another half-million dollars in in forest
The bank’s attorneys said the residents' agreements with Haddad are a cloud on its title to the land and must be removed before the property can be sold.
