As a board member of your HOA, you are bound by certain fiduciary duties. Fulfilling these duties, though, can sometimes be hard. Even the more minor of wrongdoings or acts of negligence can be read by homeowners as a breach of your fiduciary duty. When that happens, some homeowners might file a lawsuit against the association and specifically mention members of the board by name.
Litigation can get messy, and homeowners have sued their HOAs for much less in the past. Whilst state laws provide the board some protection against personal liability, victory is not a sure thing. Even if you know you did nothing wrong, you still need a Sevierville, TN HOA attorney to represent the association and defend your case.
