Consolidated-Tomoka Land Co., Case No. 5D12-3323, Fifth District Court of Appeal for the State of Florida. The Court affirmed a final judgment in favor of Consolidated Tomoka which held that the Company’s lien of approximately $3.8 million (plus interest) against an approximately 600 acre parcel of residential land (lying west of I-95 near the LPGA International development and adjacent to Bayberry Colony) is superior to the mortgage of BB&T. Presently, the judgment has accrued to over $4.6 million, including interest. This decision is subject to possible motion for a rehearing by BB&T.
