Governor Brown Signs CLAC-sponsored Assembly Bill 1412 (CA)

Governor Jerry Brown signed into law this week Assembly Bill 1412, legislation sponsored by the California Associations Institute’s California Legislative Action Committee (CAI-CLAC) and authored by Assemblyman Steven Choi (R-68th District) that provides important liability protections for volunteer directors of mixed-use community associations.  Existing law limits the personal liability of volunteer officers or directors of associations that manage exclusively residential common interest developments for tortious acts or omissions made in good faith and within their scope of duty. AB 1412 extends these protections to volunteer officers or directors in associations that that manage mixed-use communities, including both residential, commercial and/or office.
