Tamarack’s Boespflug in contempt for missing court date

An Idaho judge has declared the French developer of a cash-strapped Idaho ski resort in contempt for missing yet another court date on the resort’s foreclosure.

Jean-Pierre Boespflug was ordered to appear in state court June 10 after missing a hearing and a deadline for turning over financial documents to the court last month.

When Boespflug failed to appear June 10, Fourth District Judge Michael McLaughlin declared him in contempt, issued another arrest warrant. He also faces fines of up to $5,000 per day.

Boespflug is the majority owner of Tamarack Resort, a ski resort about 90 miles north of Boise. The French native estimates he lost at least $45 million in his Tamarack investment after the 2008 plunge in the real estate market left him unable to repay loans to investment banks.

His whereabouts are unknown.
