Association Entitled to Reasonable Attorney's Fees
Facts: A planned community of several subdivisions consolidated to form a single community association in 1999. As part of the transition process, the association recorded several amended governing documents with the county clerk. When a member purchased a home in 2000, she did not know that her property was subject to the amended governing documents. Later, the member sued to have the amended documents nullified and to have the court state that she did not have to pay assessments. The association won the case and sued the member for reasonable attorney's fees.
