Landlord Didn't Have to Name Tenant's Husband in Court Papers
LVT Number: #27716
Landlord sued to evict tenant for keeping a dog in violation of her lease. At trial, tenant asked the court to dismiss the case because landlord hadn't named tenant's husband as a party to the case, even though landlord knew the husband's name. The court ruled for tenant and dismissed the case. Landlord appealed and won. Only tenant had signed the most recent renewal lease for the apartment. Therefore, tenant's husband wasn't a necessary party to the proceeding.
