SAN ANDREAS -- Depending on how you look at it, Lake Tulloch Resort has partied to death or been sentenced to death for partying.
The resort has been famed over the past four years for its series of "Bump" parties.
The ski-boat-oriented events held twice a summer in recent years at the resort in Copperopolis featured disc jockeys and urban music that drew a young crowd from cities across the region.
One advertisement for Bump V, held in June, boasted that the approximately 75 boats participating had "125,000 watts of power" feeding their amplification systems.
Calaveras County officials say the events caused problems, including arrests for drunken behavior, and trash, noise and traffic congestion that prompted complaints from neighbors.
County officials say the resort should have obtained a conditional use permit. Now, the county is suing to force the resort to get a permit or stop holding the events.
