A Note From the Issue Editor
By Richard D. Williamson, Esq.
The July 2010 issue of Nevada Lawyer focuses on the intertwined subjects of common-interest communities and construction defect litigation. While it would be impossible to completely cover the array of topics crowded under such a broad umbrella, we have tried to include several timely articles based on that theme. First, Gayle Kern provides an overview of common-interest community finances and some of the enforcement mechanisms available to homeowners’ associations. Next, Douglas Flowers offers a guide to the procedures and considerations to follow when transferring special declarant’s rights. Lastly, Ian Gillan and Sarah Bean contribute an analysis of the evolution of representative-type construction defect litigation. Another feature contained in this issue is the recap of the State Bar of Nevada’s annual meeting. In addition to these features, the news, notices, columns and other diverse content should prove both interesting and informative. In particular, there are several items highlighting achievements in law-related education across the state. The success of these programs helps ensure that legal scholarship continues to thrive in Nevada.
