Let us not forget who bears the burden of proof! That is going to take a lot of hours of research and hard work that the plaintiff must confidently define! Then once the homework is done, they can commence and present their case to the court. And can the presiding judge apply and determine fault and breach of contract according to applicable laws justly? I love a good lawsuit!

Who cares about how “rich” the hotelier is...... The bottom line is that it appears on the surface as a reach of contract and potentially shoddy work and possibly over billing.

Remember....the next time it could be one of us so using richness, or even the questionable idea of a second story pool, is moot.

I don't think missing 4-5 months of pool time during the summer of '19 is a great loss as you can't use it during winter. Nor can you blame the defendants for the pandemic in 2020-2021. Consider that this is "the land of manana" when mitigating your damages.

Oh yes and Heritage Hotels is I believe owned by some 12th generation New Mexicans who should be environmentally conscious and who should know better than to install a swimming pool in a desert but then again I believe they also failed to pay some employees and the Dept of Workforce Solutions filed suit against the corporation. As for Lloyd and Associates, Mr Lloyd thinks aging in place is a hardship and that one can conclusively prove a speculative future need to justify an exception for a wealthy couple to add a bathroom onto a significant historic building because the other three bathrooms just wouldn't do....Now one side of this significant structure has a very "sensitively added" green sided room right on the street.

Oh please Heritage Hotels & Resorts are sooooo rich this whole project was probably a drop in the bucket for them. Granted, that doesn't excuse poor workmanship, but hard to feel sorry for them. Does make a person second guess visiting the rooftop pool or whatever ball room lies underneath it.


Swimming pool on the second floor. What could go wrong?
