Four inches of Obama bankrupts homeowners association2/11/2013
$100,000 per inch. That's what it cost a homeowners association to go to war with a couple living in the Olde Belhaven community, D.C., over an Obama for President sign they put in their yard back in 2008. The sign was apparently four inches taller than the maximum limit allowed by the association's rules. But, Sam and Maria Farra refused to back down, arguing their right to display the sign was protected by the Constitution. Over four years later, and forced to pay Sam and Maria Farra's legal costs as well as their own, the $400,000 in fees has financially ruined the association. Sometimes, it's better not to sweat the little things. [Source]
