Class action against Omni La Costa claims owners are forced to rent out their villas

Federal Court

SAN DIEGO (Legal Newsline) - A renowned Southern California resort that once was a meeting place for President Richard Nixon’s aides during the Watergate scandal is implicated in a couple’s breach of contract lawsuit.

Dean and Laurie Beaver claim in their 38-page complaint, which was filed on Jan. 29 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California, that Omni Hotels Management Corp. engaged in a “string of nefarious wrongdoing” at the Omni La Costa Resort and Spa in Carlsbad, Calif., 35 miles north of San Diego.

The Beavers take issue with a policy prohibiting villa owners from using their villas for more than 120 days per year.

“Because of the use restriction, owners are effectively forced to rent their villas for two-thirds of the year or leave them unoccupied,” the suit says.

According to the couple, they and an “overwhelming” majority of villa owners rent their units under a rental management agreement “near full time and do not use anywhere close to the 120 days they are permitted to use for personal use.”

The plaintiffs have filed a class action and seek tens of millions of dollars. They are represented by Reiser Law, P.C., in Walnut Creek, Calif.
