NBCUniversal is facing a new lawsuit that could impact plans for a fourth park on the new land they acquired last year according the the Orlando Sentinel. The lawsuit comes from a Georgia developer, Stan Thomas, who used to control the land on Sand Lake Road before losing the property in a foreclosure.

The lawsuit claims there are “restrictions on the land that prevent a large-scale tourist attraction.” Universal has not commented on the litigation and they are unlikely  to do so.

The ironic part of the lawsuit is that apparently Universal was involved in placing the restrictions on the property back in 2000 to prevent any competing theme parks from building on the land. Thomas claims the restrictions were never lifted, which could cause the complications for Universal.
