Landlord v. Tenant: March 2019
Tenants’ Harassment Claim Dismissed
Tenants brought an HP proceeding against landlord, seeking correction of building violations and also claiming harassment by landlord. Landlord and tenants signed a consent order to correct violations, and a trial was set to examine the harassment claim. Landlord then asked the court to dismiss the harassment claim without a trial and argued that tenant’s court papers contained no statement of facts to support the harassment claim. Landlord therefore couldn’t defend itself against these claims.
