ANNEXATION . - ALABAMA

Courtyard Manor Homeowners' Association, Inc. v. City of Pelham

Supreme Court of Alabama - October 18, 2019 - So.3d - 2019 WL 5288011

Homeowners’ association brought action against city in which association requested that city conduct a hearing on association’s petition to be deannexed from city’s municipal limits, on which city allegedly failed to take any action.

The Circuit Court dismissed for failure to state a claim. Association appealed.

As a matter of apparent first impression, the Supreme Court held that State Constitution’s provision on petitioning the government for redress of grievances did not require city to respond to the deannexation petition.
