CBS legal analyst, Andrew Cohen, wrote in the Atlantic,
”The homeowners association? What? At the same time that Sooner was trying to rehabilitate Zimmerman, the Martin family attorney, Ben Crump, was suggesting that Zimmerman’s homeowners association may have some civil liability here because it reportedly encouraged residents to coordinate their “neighbor watch” concerns with Zimmerman. Crump would have to prove that this was negligence. Good luck with that — and bring on the depositions!”

Just goes to show that this legal expert dismisses questions of negligence by the HOA, but does he really know about what goes on in HOAs, or the HOA respondeat superior failure to oversee agents. I will hazard a guess that what he has learned about HOAs comes from the propaganda by “Great Educator” and national HOA lobbyist organization, Community Associations Institute, CAI.
