  • Attorneys Jennifer L. Stewart and Jacqueline L. Aiello successfully defended a condominium and members of its board of managers from a claim by two unit owners arising from alterations performed in their unit. The unit owner plaintiffs sought to compel the condominium and individual board members to arbitrate their various complaints concerning the alteration, including their challenge to liquidated damages imposed pursuant to the alteration agreement for exceeding the alteration schedule provided therein. On BRPC’s motion, the arbitration was dismissed in its entirety because it was not within the scope of the arbitration provisions in the condominium’s governing documents.
  • Joseph Riopelle obtained a dismissal with prejudice and substantial findings of fact for his client, the Master Association, which was sued by a sub-association for declaratory and injunctive relief related to the interpretation and application of the Master Association’s governing documents. Joseph successfully defended the validity of numerous provisions of the governing documents and solidified the clients ability to continue to charge assessments and other costs to all sub-associations as provided for in the disputed governing documents. The client may now move forward with the order and findings of fact to refute any future challenges to the validity of the governing documents by any other sub-association.
