Member Lacked Standing to Sue Association
Facts: A former member in a condominium sued the association, board of directors, and property manager for allegedly failing to maintain the complex’s common areas. In particular, they supposedly didn’t adequately address pipe problems and termite infestations. The defendants asked the trial court for a judgment in their favor without a trial. The trial court granted the request. The member appealed.
Decision: A California appeals court upheld the trial court’s ruling.
