An Oklahoma judge on Monday ruled in favor of Baskin’s Big Cat Rescue Corporation in a lawsuit filed against Greater Winwood Development Group, LLC, (GWDC). The next company was once owned by Estic, whose real name was Joseph Allen Maldonado-Passage.
The order gives Baskin control over about 1 acre of land in Garvin County, Oklahoma, in a zoo home with an array of large cats.
The court order states that the GWDC must “vacate the zoo land premises within 120 days of this order … all zoo animals will need to be removed from the zoo land for vacation on the premises,” the court order said.
The verdict also provided Baskin with several cabins and vehicles, according to court records.
The owner of an animal sanctuary in Florida, Baskin has been a vocal critic of the Maldonado-Passage animal park for many years, a fight that escalates into court battles.
Court documents allege he tried to pay Hitman, 1,000,000 to kill Baskin and that he shot and killed five tigers, sold baby lemons and falsified documents that they were given grants.
A lawyer for Jeff Lowe, the current owner of Ecstasy Park, told CNN that the verdict he gave today was not unexpected.
Moselle said Monday, “We were guessing that Carol Baskin received the East Park title which once belonged to Joe Exotic, and we did not challenge her efforts.” “Jeff’s focus is on opening a new Tiger King Park in Thackerville (Oklahoma), which should open in the next 120 days.”
CNN reached out to Baskin to comment on the verdict, but has not yet heard.
