PMK attorneys Taylor W. Gray and Leo Y. Shimizu recently filed a Petition to Excuse Compliance with the Requirement for an Oahu-based Condominium Association’s Governing Documents. They argued that the 50% quorum requirement unreasonably interfered with the Association’s ability to carry out its functions as outlined in its governing documents.

The Association had unsuccessfully attempted to hold an annual meeting at quorum for the past three years (2018, 2019 and 2020).

The Court granted the motion, reducing the quorum requirement for annual meetings from 50% to a more attainable 35%. As a result, the Association will be able to move forward on important business, including the election of new directors.
