Jay Roberts Obtains Court of Appeals Reversal

Posted in Fair Housing Act

roberts_jBecker & Poliakoff senior attorney Jay Roberts recently scored a win for his condominium association client in a Fair Housing Act (FHA) ruling from the Florida First District Court of Appeal (Harbour Pointe of Perdido Key Condominium Association, Inc. v. James Henkel).

The appellate ruling has potentially broad implications for condominium associations. While all design and construction must comply with the FHA, Mr. Roberts successfully argued that as a subsequent operator of the condominium complex in question, the association was exempt from claims of design-and-construction discrimination liability related to the condominium developer’s failure to adhere to FHA guidelines.
