Superior Court is, Indeed, Superior!

Many of our clients have decided to start filing lawsuits in Superior Court (rather than Small Claims) against owners who are delinquent in the payment of assessments.  There seems to be a trend where several of our clients have been unable to obtain judgments against delinquent owners in Small Claims court because some of the judges seem to be interpreting the law differently.  Once a decision is made in Small Claims court, the homeowners association usually cannot appeal the judge’s decision.  We are having great success in Superior Court in obtaining judgments against delinquent owners.  The judgments include attorneys’ fees and costs incurred by the homeowners associations.
