Single Incident Not Sufficient to Show Course of Objectionable Conduct
LVT Number: #28361
Landlord sued to evict tenant for creating a nuisance. Landlord's termination notice stated that landlord left a pot burning on her stove on Aug. 29, 2017, causing a smoke condition that was dangerous and possibly fatal to others in the building. The court granted tenant's request to dismiss the case. The conduct claimed by landlord didn't amount to nuisance since the claims didn't show a pattern or course of objectionable conduct.
