Association Reasonably Denied Member's Accommodation Request
Facts: A condo association's governing documents prohibits members from keeping pets on the premises. The association sued a member and sought a court order preventing him from keeping a pet in violation of the governing documents. During the course of the trial, the member raised numerous counterclaims, but stated that he was not requesting an accommodation under the Fair Housing Act (FHA). However, he stated that he will claim the need for an accommodation under the FHA in the event a court holds valid the restrictive covenant prohibiting pet ownership.
