    I have seen some of these suits. A real issue in some cases is that while the manager actually did buy flood insurance which covered common areas, the individual condo owners did not buy flood insurance for their property and posessions. But then the individual owners want to blame someone else for not buying insurance for them but the manager actually can't buy it for them.
