Association Not Liable for Damaging Individual Unit Owners
Facts: An association sued two members for not paying maintenance fees. The members filed a counterclaim alleging that the association had caused monetary damage to them by “engaging in bad faith conduct” by its involvement in a lawsuit filed by a group of other members in the community who accused the association of withholding financial documents. The members asserted that they had been rejected for a reverse mortgage loan on their unit because of that lawsuit. A trial court ruled in favor of the association without a trial. The members appealed.
