Brief:  The High Court has dismissed an applicant’s bid to declare that the 2019 annual general meeting (AGM) held on 3 August 2019 at the Caribbean at Keppel Bay condominium had been improperly adjourned. The AGM was adjourned to 19 October 2019 because it ran out of time, with 19 motions left unaddressed. Also, by then, 10 out of the 11 spots for the 13th management council had been filled. “The court will take this into account in considering the conduct of chairpersons of general meetings under the Act and will, unless there has been bad faith, lean in favour of the chair,” Justice Lee Seiu Kin added, referring to the Building Maintenance and Strata Management Act.
