The Case Law Update is not intended to be a complete list of all cases decided in 2017 involving community associations or the enforcement of restrictive covenants. The focus of the Case Law Update is on reported, appellate court decisions that address community association law, but some cases meeting those criteria may be omitted, and in appropriate cases, reported trial court decisions may be included. Not all the legal issues are necessarily summarized in this Case Law Update. Some of the cases discussed in this Case Law Update may be subject to revision prior to official publication or may be subject to further appellate review. An attorney should check the current status of a case before citing or otherwise relying upon the case.
