Article Summary: 

The article reports on legal proceedings that were commenced by two condominium corporations after unit owners requisitioned a meeting to vote to remove their directors. The corporations sought a court order to prohibit the use of proxies at the meeting and limit communications between owners leading up to the vote. However, the judge denied both requests, stating that owners have a statutory right to vote by proxy and that limiting communication would also limit the right to discuss important issues before a vote. The judge emphasized the importance of democratic process in the governance of condominiums and the need for all owners to participate, particularly in the case of contentious issues.
