The Jewish Resource Center Chabad of Aspen, which planned to purchase ex-tennis star’s Andrea Jaeger’s Silver Lining Ranch for its new community center, has terminated its contract to buy the property in the face of a legal battle with neighboring homeowners who claim neighborhood covenants don’t allow the religious center on the property.On Monday, the Little Star Foundation filed a lawsuit in Pitkin County District Court against the Stillwater Homeowners Association, where Silver Lining Ranch is located, and the homeowners association members. The suit asks a judge to issue an injunction stopping the HOA from threatening litigation, which had prevented Chabad from executing its contract to purchase the property. The Little Star Foundation is run by professional-tennis-player-turned-nun Andrea Jaeger. The foundation serves children with terminal illnesses by treating them to mountain activities. The foundation operated a camp at the Silver Lining Ranch since the late 1990s, but moved its operations to Durango in 2005. Jaeger says funds from selling the property are crucial to the financial health of her foundation.
