Little Rock apartment complex proprietors fined for contempt

Little Rock, Arkansas – The Big Country Chateau apartment complex in Little Rock, overseen by three distinct companies, was brought under scrutiny following a recent contempt ruling on Monday.

This decision stems from an action initiated by the Arkansas Attorney General, Tim Griffin, against the complex’s proprietors. The lawsuit alleged violations of the state’s Deceptive Trade Practices Act due to their failure to supply tenants with water service and maintain habitable conditions.

In addressing this, Griffin remarked, “The owners of Big Country Chateau continue to demonstrate a consistent and willful disregard for the court and its authority throughout this litigation.” He elaborated on their refusal to furnish vital documents to the court-appointed Receiver and their non-compliance in court attendance when mandated. Griffin emphasized, “This is the latest in a string of conduct that disrespects the rule of law.”

Griffin perceives this recent judgment as a progressive step in addressing the issue and prompting the proprietors of Big Country Chateau to rectify their actions. “I am hopeful that today’s ruling is a step toward a resolution of this matter and will encourage those behind Big Country Chateau to participate in the legal process and make amends for their detestable behavior against Arkansans,” stated Griffin.

In response to their defiance, Pulaski County Circuit Judge Cara Connors sanctioned a daily fine of $1,000 on each of the involved companies: Big Country Chateau, LLC, Apex Big Chateau AR, LLC, and Apex Equity Group, LLC, for failing to adhere to her directive to submit the required documentation to the court-appointed receiver.
