After they were ousted from their co-op board, Juan Ortiz and Mayra Santiago filed suit claiming that the election hadn't been conducted in accordance with the entity's bylaws.

But both the Kings County Supreme Court and the Appellate Division, Second Department, were of the view that the special meeting and election had been properly noticed and conducted. (As for a management services contract with a building management company, the AD2 ended up invalidating that agreement because it hadn't been signed by the co-op's President or Vice President as required by the entity's bylaws.)

They weren't on board for that?
