Landlord Didn't Have to Name Tenant's Son as Party in Court Papers
LVT Number: #30218
Landlord sued to evict rent-stabilized tenant for nuisance, claiming that tenants or members of tenant's family verbally harassed other building tenants on a continuing and ongoing basis. Tenant's son asked the court to dismiss the case because he wasn't specifically named as a party to the proceeding. Landlord instead named tenant "John Doe" and "Jane Doe." Tenant's son claimed that landlord should have known and used his name on court papers.
