Shareholder Tenant's Lawsuit Against Co-op Board Dismissed
LVT Number: #30097
Cooperative shareholder tenant sued landlord cooperative corporation to challenge amendments to her apartment's proprietary lease. Tenant claimed that landlord acted in bad faith. Landlord had amended the proprietary lease to say that shareholders' family members or domestic employees could occupy the apartment "while the lessee or the lessee's spouse or domestic partner are in residence." Tenant claimed this amendment should be void and unenforceable, so that family members could occupy her apartment whether or not she was in residence.
