Can unit owners force condo board to evict someone not paying assessments?

Q:  I am a current board member in a six-unit, self-managed condominium association. The previous board refused to initiate collection proceedings against a unit owner who was not paying assessments, but when the subsequent board was elected, we immediately initiated such proceedings. Nonetheless, just before the association was able to commence the eviction — after obtaining a court judgment against the nonpaying unit owner — another board election occurred. Past board members got re-elected to a majority of the board and immediately ceased the eviction proceeding with no plan for collecting the now-$15,000 debt.  Do the unit owners have any recourse to force the board to continue legal proceedings against a unit owner with a large assessment delinquency in a small association?       Read the Q&A…………….
