Only In VA though...it was the State Supreme Court and not Federal.
Even if it was the US Supreme Court, it wouldn’t do much for Hams wanting to put up an antenna in a community with CC&Rs. The holding was that the HOA can’t make up rules and fines for the homeowners.
Most CC&Rs that prohibit antennas include a clause that says if the HOA takes legal action to get compliance and the homeowner loses, the homeowner has to pay the HOA’s legal fees. So the HOA sues for an injunction to get the antenna removed. The Ham will almost surely lose. The Ham now owes legal fees for both sides and has an injunction to remove the antenna. In some cases if the HOA has its attorney write a letter and the Ham decides to remove the antenna, the Ham still has to pay the fee for the HOA’s attorney to write the letter.
