Owner sought records from a Michigan association (the “Association:”). The Association refused to produce records presumably on the grounds that the requests were long, difficult to follow and failed to state a proper purpose. The requests, clarified in the complaint, consisted of the following:
- Bills or invoices showing the cost of past litigation;
- Records relating to orders for wrist bands for access to the pool;
- Work orders or invoices for light bulb replacements in Owner’s building;
- Board minutes from April 2019 until September 2019;
- Records relating to when Owner’s checks from approximately June 2019 through September 2019 were received by the Association and posted to Owner’s account;
- Board minutes for 2018; and
- Financial statements for 2017 and 2018.
The Association largely ignored the Owner’s requests, which led to the Owner suing the Association.
