John Gwyn’s HOA Case Featured at CAI Annual Law Seminar
John Gwyn, an attorney in our Livonia office, recently attended the Community Associations Institute (CAI) 2022 Annual Law Seminar in California. While at the seminar, and unbeknownst to him, the national presenters chose to feature one of Mr. Gwyn’s cases as an example of the complicated interplay between tort, easement, and contract law.
The case involves a Circuit Court Judge in Macomb County agreeing with CMDA that claims made in a real property civil action should be dismissed as filed by a group of subdivision homeowners against CMDA’s client, a neighboring homeowner’s association HOA. Certain individual homeowners in the subdivision were also sued and the trial court later dismissed the claims brought against them as well. However, the Plaintiffs then filed an appeal that overturned the trial court decision as to the individual homeowners only and, therefore, the matter is still pending. More information on the case can be found here.
