Legislation before the City Council in Washington, D.C., would back association boards that are engaged in lawsuits with condo owners, hoping to reduce fear of lawsuits and encourage more people to serve on the boards. The measure would make condo boards more able to force owners to pay a share of building damages that stemmed from their units. In addition, condo associations would have to be more transparent, and a lawsuit's losing party would have to pay the winning party's legal fees.
