Are there any databases that would provide us rulings for arbitration cases relating to Florida Statute 720?
State/Country relating to question: Florida
Hi - There aren't going to be any databases with arbitration awards because arbitration is not a trial court process. However, there is possibly some case law related to the statute. I'll have to pull the statute and review the annotations. This may take me a little while, so bear with me. Thanks.

Have you been able to pull the statute and review the annotations or do you need more time? Thanks!
There are several cases for chapter 720, which is 104 pages on Lexis-Nexis. However, there are no cases for section(NNN) NNN-NNNN There's not enough room to post it all here. However, if there's a particular provision that you want me to check, I'll be glad to.
Are there any cases regarding Architectural review committees exceeding their authority, or selective enforcement?
Are you able to provide links to the cases or do you have to copy and paste each case?
Here are a few cases I've found about selective enforcement:
Shields v. Andros Isle Prop. Owners Ass'n, 872 So. 2d 1003 (Fl. Ct. App. 2004): When selective enforcement is demonstrated, a homeowner's Association is estopped from applying a given regulation. citing Chattel Shipping & Inv., Inc. v. Brickell Place Condo. Ass'n, 481 So. 2d 29, 30 (Fla. 3d DCA 1985) (citing White Egret Condo., Inc. v. Franklin, 379 So. 2d 346, 352 (Fla. 1979)).
I can't find anything that is specific to an architectural board. Most of the cases I found related to age restrictions of a HOA.
