Landlord v. Tenant: May 2019
Tenant Didn’t Prove Dog Was Emotional Support Animal
Landlord sued to evict tenant for keeping a dog in her apartment, in violation of a no-pet clause in tenant's lease. Tenant claimed that the dog was an emotional support animal needed for her to enjoy her use of her apartment. So, tenant argued, landlord must provide a reasonable accommodation for her disability under the New York State Human Rights Law.
