Do shareholders need to hire an attorney? If so, what kind?
We want him gone but the Board won't reschedule the new annual because HE wants to "investigate" the decisions made during the 13 months he wasn't attending meetings and try to find a reason to return the $30k + in assessments collected (our bank acct has $41k) so he can fix his reputation). His recall last year was 98 for / 3 against - but 75% didn't vote so it failed.
Can we take it to circuit court ourselves or do we need an atty? We want an annual and for him to reimburse the assn for the expenses incurred as a result of the failed annual

Your best option is to obtain a free consultation from an attorney who specializes in this area of the law. An attorney can best advise you as to the best strategy for achieving your unique interests. Do not wait, call an attorney immediately.
There is no requirement that you hire an attorney, but that is generally the best course of action unless one of you happens to know the rules of court, etc. Pro se litigants are expected to know and follow the law.
