Another story today about a condo association telling the mother of a Marine and a Soldier to take down her American Flag. Can I get a committee together to start slapping these idiot HOA board members until they learn not to be so damned stupid?
To the Southdale Gardens Condominium Association: Believe it or not, your job isn’t to make your HOA look stupid… this is federal law, folks… it doesn’t matter what the homeowner agreed to when they moved in, they can’t be held liable by a rule that is illegal in its nature. You’ll lose, the membership will lose money paying for your lawyers, and if there’s any justice in the world, the membership will hold YOU financially liable for the costs. Yeah, I know… your D&O insurance will cover your stupidity, but maybe you’ll at least feel some pain in the backlash. One can only hope.
Here’s your reference, in case you can’t find it:
An act to ensure that the right of an individual to display the flag of the United States on residential property not be abridged.
A condominium association, cooperative association, or residential real estate management association may not adopt or enforce any policy, or enter into any agreement, that would restrict or prevent a member of the association from displaying the flag of the United States on residential property within the association with respect to which such member has a separate ownership interest or a right to exclusive possession or use.
