Small Claims Action Dismissed Against Board of Managers
T.Y. v. Nob Hill Condominiums Section One - Suffolk County District Court in Ronkonkoma
We represented a homeowner's association in the defense of a small claims action brought by a resident. The resident alleged that the fines imposed by the HOA to him were "improper." After a bench trial, we were able to successfully argue that what the resident was actually seeking was a declaratory judgment that the fines were in violation of the Condominium's by-laws. That is equitable relief that the District Court in Suffolk County was powerless to grant.
