Association President Can't Disburse Settlement Funds
Facts: A condo association sued to stop the developers from making changes to a governing document that would have altered the rights of the existing members. Before the trial began, a court had granted the association a temporary stop order against the developer as long as the association could post a $300,000 bond. Twenty-two association members agreed to pledge personal assets worth $230,000 to secure the bond. Four years later, the court ruled for the association and ordered the bond to be released.
