Many clients of LLC lawyers own condos through LLCs; they either live in these condos or they rent them to third parties.  This post from Peter Mahler under the link below discusses cases addressing the issue of the right of condo owners to inspect and copy records of their condo associations.  As the former president of a condo association, this issue is of substantial interest to me, but it may also interest many other readers of this blog.
