Diane Rubin Quoted in Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly on Case Headed to the SJC

In the Press · September 29, 2017

Real estate attorney and chair of the Condominium Law group Diane Rubin was quoted in a recent front-page Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly article discussing Trustees of Cambridge Point Condominium Trust vs. Cambridge Point LLC, et al., a case soon to be heard by the SJC, in which a condominium board is appealing the dismissal of its lawsuit against the condominium developer for $2 million in construction defects.  Rubin, who co-authored the amicus brief in support of the plaintiffs-appellants, claimed that the suit had been dismissed because of anti-litigation stipulations in the condominium bylaws, which made it impossible for the plaintiffs to proceed.  According to Rubin, such “poison pill provisions” have become more and more common in the past decade, despite the fact that they “put the incentive all in the wrong places.”  Rubin is president-elect of the Real Estate Bar Association (REBA) and the founder of the organization’s  Condominium Law and Practice Section.  For more of her thoughts on the matter, read the full article here (subscription required).
