A western North Carolina homeowners association has been awarded $2.4 million in compensatory damages in a dispute over defective roads - a verdict that may be the largest ever in Swain County, an attorney associated with the case said.

Dickson & Co., alleging breach of express and implied warranties, breach of contract, negligence, fraud and unfair and deceptive trade practices.
