Judge Orders The Enclave HOA To Pay Plaintiffs Legal Fees

A judge has ordered The Enclave at Fairways Homeowner’s Association to pony up more than $85,000 in fees to plaintiffs who alleged that homeowner association bylaws discriminated against Orthodox Jewish residents of The Enclave.

The plaintiffs had previously filed a suit alleging that the homeowners association made several moves targeting Orthodox Jewish residents of the over-55 Enclave community, including locking the gate of a pedestrian entrance of The Enclave, blocking Orthodox Jews from leaving to attend synagogue, and making visits by families and friends of The Enclave residents on Saturdays and holidays impossible.
After being sued, the homeowners association eventually relented, settling with the plaintiffs and agreeing to put new rules into place which would accommodate the needs of Orthodox Jews.
Following their settlement victory, the plaintiffs filed a motion seeking to be paid back by the homeowners association for attorney’s fees and legal costs. After careful deliberation, the judge agreed with the plaintiffs, ordering The Enclave Homeowners Association to pay back the plaintiffs for $86,318.90 in fees.
A source intimately involved in the proceedings said that Jackson Township should take notice of what happened in this case.
“Jackson is embroiled in multiple lawsuits alleging religious discrimination. If they lost in court, the township could potentially be on the hook for millions of dollars in legal fees,” the source told TLS.
