You know, I've heard it said that we live in such a litigious society that it's gotten to the point that anyone can sue anyone over anything, and that they do. I cannot believe this HOA thinks they're so collectively above the law that they can stop people from accessing public rights-of-way.

How complicated will it become if the HOA prevails in this suit, and suddenly LE has to check with the court to see if all public areas or, in fact, public.
If they were in a gated community, I can see the HOA having control over the sidewalks, etc. To my knowledge, it's not gated. I'll have to research that. I hope there's no way in he!! that the court will rule in the HOA's favor.
Unless substantiated with a link, all comments are nothing more than my personal opinion. And opinions are like, well, noses; we all have one.
