Landlord Can't Get Loft Tenant's Juror Records
LVT Number: #30148
Landlord sued the court's commissioner of jurors, seeking disclosure of loft tenant's home and mailing addresses, as well as tenant's dates of jury service. The court ruled against landlord, who appealed and lost. To benefit from Multiple Dwelling Law protections, loft tenant had to prove that the loft was his residence or home between Jan. 1, 2008, and Dec. 31, 2009. Tenant had claimed before the Office of Administrative Trials and Hearings (OATH) that he served on two juries and that his jury summonses were mailed to the loft premises.
