- Link to the Lake County, FL Clerk of the Circuit Court webpage showing activities related to a lawsuit filed by NLCHD Board member Marilyn Bainter against six defendants, including the Board, Leesburg & Waterman Hospitals and related parties to challenge the constitutional legality of the current NLCHD regulations. The court hearing is currently scheduled for January 20, 2011, more than ONE YEAR after the case was filed. The Judge is G. Richard Singeltary, and the case ( BAINTER, MARILYN et al vs. MCKEE AS TAX COLLECTOR OF LAKE COUNTY FLORIDA, BOB et al ) is 2010 CA 000055. This case hearing has been postponed twice, most likely to push it to after the Nov. 2nd elections and the Sept., 2010 NLCHD Board meeting. (our opinion).
