Liable By Plea

On December 17, 2013, in a City of Chicago Administrative Hearing, the Association through its attorney Nicholas Mitchell of Kovitz Shifrin Nesbit, as directed by the Board pled “Liable by Plea” to violating the City of Chicago Condo Ordinance and agreed to pay a $4,500 fine. The Disposition “Liable-By plea” is defined by the City of Chicago as defined as “when the respondent agrees that the violations exist and that they have not been corrected prior to the hearing. Fines and/or other penalties and costs are imposed immediately.”

      Apparently, the Board and Management broke Chicago Municipal Code 13-72-080 Examination of records by unit owners. The Ordinance reads: “No person shall fail to allow unit owners to inspect the books and records of account for the condominium association’s current and 10 immediately preceding fiscal years, including but not limited to itemized and detailed records of all receipts and expenditures, within thirty business days of the time written request for examination of the records is received.”

    Is it because Milazzo doesn’t want to show financial records that we have to pay a fine of $4500?

    What does he want to hide?

    What does liable-by-plea mean?
