An Arbomar resident is continuing his lawsuit against the 31-unit condo’s board and four of its members.
Pete DiNicola filed an Aug. 1 motion to amend his original complaint in Manatee County Court.
The suit contains new allegations, including that board members illegally held meetings in secret and didn’t follow proper procedure when they approved a window project that’s currently underway, which resulted in an assessment of $8,000 per unit owner.
The lawsuit stems from allegations that the board’s president, Walter “Chip” Major, conducted unlicensed construction work on his and three other units in the condo, including the residence of board member Judith Spiezio. The suit accuses board members of violating the condo association’s covenants and breaching their fiduciary duty.
Major did not return multiple phone calls from the Longboat Observer. Spiezio and board member Ed Kaczynski, who are both named in the suit, declined to comment for this story, citing pending litigation.
