Association Not Liable for Unforeseen Violence
Facts: The owner of a home in a gated community was injured during a home invasion. The owner sued the association, which managed, maintained, and controlled the community. She alleged, among other things, that the association’s negligence in failing to maintain adequate security at the two entrance gates of the community was the proximate—that is, direct—cause of her injuries. The association asked a trial court for a judgment in its favor without a trial. The trial court granted the request, and the owner appealed.
