Court Rejects Condominium Owner's Attempt to Invalidate Assessments

In a recent unpublished opinion, the Washington Court of Appeals affirmed the trial court's summary judgment denial of a condominium owner's legal challenges to the assessments charged to his unit.  The owner argued that the assessments were invalid in a variety of ways, but the Court held that he did not offer sufficient evidence to support any of them.  The Court also noted that "the owner of a condominium residential unit may not withhold payment of condominium assessments as a form of protest."
