Washington State Supreme Court Denies Review in Curt Casey, et al. v. Sudden Valley Community Association
by Brian P. McLean
Our Supreme Court denied review yesterday in Curt Casey, et al. v. Sudden Valley Community Association. The Court of Appeals case creates significant uncertainty about the applicability of RCW 64.38 to budget-making so it is unfortunate that many homeowner associations will be left with that uncertainty.
At a more personal level the petitioners in the case were responsible owners trying to do what’s best for their entire community. Even if reasonable minds could differ about their objectives the final court decision likely leaves them exposed to hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal fees and costs.
