In this struggle for control of a nonprofit corporation, appellant Asset Management raises two issues for our consideration. First, Asset Management asserts that the trial court abused its discretion by replacing the corporation’s custodian. Second, Asset Management asserts that the trial court abused its discretion by failing to adequately protect its financial interests. Because the trial court did not abuse its discretion on either point, we affirm the trial court’s order.

We note at the outset that there is a dearth of facts in the record. The following facts were gleaned from the parties’ briefs, motions, and representations to the trial court. Gary Harris, a businessman currently in federal prison on unrelated racketeering charges, incorporated Resorts Holding Trust. Resorts Holding Trust then bought properties known collectively as Conneaut Lake Park, an amusement park and campground facility. Thereafter, on August 29, 1997, Resorts Holding Trust assigned the Conneaut Lake Park property to Property on the Lake, Inc. Asset Management claims that Property on the Lake, Inc. then leased the real property for a term of 99 years to Asset Management, an alleged alter ego of Gary Harris. It is further asserted that Property on the Lake, Inc. sold personalty located at Conneaut Lake Park (amusement rides and related property) to four or five holding companies controlled by Asset Management. Although not entirely clear from the record, it appears that the lease was not recorded and documents pertaining to the sale of the personal property were lost.

IN MEMORIAM OUR FRIEND, MENTOR, AND COLLEAGUE It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our partner, friend, mentor, and colleague Bruce I. Goldstein, on September 2, 2023. The prominent New Jersey trial attorney was 80. In a legal career spanning more than five decades, Bruce was regarded as one of the most talented and sought after litigators in New Jersey. His love for the legal profession was contagious. Bruce will be greatly missed, as will his signature greeting, How you be? and the outsized smile that accompanied it.
