Judge dismisses Grace Foundation’s lawsuit

Monday, Aug. 18, 2014 — A $20 million lawsuit filed against Lassen County by the director of a horse rescue organization has been dismissed.

County Administrative Officer Richard Egan said an Orange County Superior Court judge made the decision Monday, Aug. 4 when a jury trial was scheduled.

According to county counsel Bob Burns, the case was dismissed because DeCaprio abandoned the cause of action by not appearing in court.

All other defendants including Wells Fargo, Bank of America and the banks’ former attorney Tim Ryan were also dismissed.

The ruling comes after a two-year legal battle with Beth DeCaprio, who alleged horses removed from Whispering Pines on Highway 36 were fraudulently handed over and care of the animals was bankrupting her organization.

Reckless lawsuit supported by two of the most critical websites in Lassen County. Those folks couldn’t wait to give away millions of our money while claiming to represent us. Thank God they weren’t elected to the board.

We know that Dwight was the whole reason behind the lawsuit and Whispering Pines should have been looked at long before authorities finally did step in and take action.
