A bench warrant has been issued for Jean-Pierre Boespflug. The controversial developer of Tamarack failed to appear today before Fourth District Judge Michael McLaughlin. As a result, McLaughlin ordered Boespflug in contempt, issued a warrant and slapped a $5,000-a-day fine on the developer. McLaughlin had originally ordered Boespflug to disclose Tamarack's financial records.
Boespflug is still missing, and remains the majority owner of the bankrupt Valley County resort. Tamarack opened this past winter for skiing in an effort to keep the resort viable to possible buyers.
