Landlord Didn't Deliver Court Papers to Tenant's Alternate Address
LVT Number: #24941
Landlord cooperative corporation sued to evict tenant shareholder for unauthorized sublet of tenant's co-op apartment. Tenant asked the court to dismiss the case based on improper delivery of its court papers. The court ruled for tenant and granted him attorney's fees. Landlord appealed and won, in part. The court correctly dismissed the case because landlord failed to mail a copy of the notice of the eviction proceeding to tenant's alternate address in Paris, France, within one day after affixing a copy to the door of tenant's apartment.
