Condo Owner Must Pay|Fees For Harassment

(CN) - A partner in a luxury condominium is liable for attorney's fees after harassing the builder over details of the project, the Guam Supreme Court ruled.

George Macris sued Daniel Swavely under the Deceptive Trade Practices Act after Swavely voted with other members of Beach Front Development LLC to build a rooftop terrace accessible by elevator. Swavely was de facto leader of the BFD board.

Justice Carbullido agreed with the trial court that Macris sued to harass Swavely.

"The trial court cited numerous instances of Macris bringing forth claims without evidentiary support," Carbullido wrote. "Macris' lawsuit was an evolution in strategy in Macris' ongoing efforts to force BFD to create a rooftop elevator that is accessible by elevator."
