Where plaintiffs sued their neighbors and the homeowners association in a dispute over the neighbors’ newly installed and highly reflective metal roof, the association waived any objection based on inconsistent verdicts when it did not object before the jury was discharged, and the trial court erred in entering JNOV as to verdict C based on inconsistency, and the court abused its discretion by denying plaintiffs’ motion to amend the judgment to provide for an award of attorney fees and costs in connection with a boundary-line change.
Vacated in part; affirmed in part; remanded with directions.
