The Community Association Virtual Law Seminar took place this week on an interactive virtual platform, with attendees including CAI members, attorneys, and risk management and insurance professionals. CAI’s 2021 case law update team reviewed 450 cases from 2020 relevant to the community association housing model and summarized 300 of them, with CCAL fellows presenting 70 of the cases to nearly 700 attendees during the event.
During these presentations, attendees received a first look at the past year’s most significant court cases and developments shaping community association law. This included a review of relevant statutes and regulations setting precedent for future cases, and a focus on emerging trends in association jurisprudence.
Many trends in litigation coincide with what our industry sees in legislation each year. Last year, these trends included cases regarding assessments, association operations, civil procedure, covenant enforcement, developer transition, fair housing, and foreclosure.
The most recent case law update also features several cases where CAI submitted amicus curiae briefs in 2020. CAI’s amicus curiae (friend of the court) program allows our membership to educate a court about important legal and policy issues in cases related to the community association housing model. You can find more on CAI’s amicus briefs here: www.caionline.org/Amicus
CAI’s case law database is an indispensable resource for community association lawyers across the country. Whether your practice focuses on community association litigation, regulation, or legislation, please keep CAI’s database in mind as a resource.
We thank the 2021 case law update team and presenters for volunteering their time and expertise in researching, organizing, and summarizing the most important cases to the community association housing model from 2020.
