I am naturally biased in the sense that when I believe a family member has been cheated in a contract, I need to 'check' myself to ensure that I have not overlooked anything: especially if I am to send a demand letter and bring the matter to small claims court.
That being said, is there a forum (unclear if this is acceptable here) to put forth the facts and have a community 'pick it apart' so as to overcome my bias?
Is this the right forum to check my bias? If not, I will edit my question to remove the details.
If an example is OK with the community, the issue is the incorrect share is distributed (issue in the numerator):
share = (Disaster Insurance Check / #unit-owners) - Uncle's damages
The HOA bylaws state:
I believes the shares should be:
share = [Disaster Insurance Check - sum(AllDamages)] / #unit-owners
Naturally, I understand that there is always the possibility there is more in the governing bylaws that could be relevant and flip the outcome, but I think I can say with confidence nobody here has the time, energy or inclination to read them if I posted it (I will email it to you if you ask).
What is strongest argument the defendant would make to justify the first formula over the latter?
I am looking forward to clever counter-arguments. Thank you!
