Tenant Didn't Materially Violate Settlement Agreement
LVT Number: #24624
Landlord sued to evict rent-controlled tenant based on illegal activity in tenant's apartment. Landlord and tenant signed a settlement agreement in court. Tenant agreed to judgment for the landlord and issuance of an eviction warrant. Execution on the warrant was stayed provided that tenant's roommate be excluded from the apartment permanently. Landlord later asked the court for permission to proceed with eviction on the grounds that tenant violated the agreement. The court ruled against landlord, who appealed and lost.
