NON-DAMAGE LAWSUITS

QUESTION: Reading your newsletter, I was stopped by the term "non-damages lawsuits." I don't understand how anybody can sue when there are no damages.

ANSWER: Most lawsuits seek monetary damages for injuries suffered by a plaintiff, whether real or imagined. With homeowner associations, plaintiffs might seek declaratory or injunctive relief instead of damages. These kinds of lawsuits are often not covered by the association's insurance and may result in a special assessment against the membership.
