​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​This database* consists of appellate cases ​reviewed for presentation at the Community Association Annual Law Seminar hosted by the College of Community Association Lawyers. CAI members can view cases by selecting a category below or using the search box to the right to search by keyword or state.


*This database is not intended to be a complete list of all cases ​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.
