Tenant Didn't Prove Her Son Needed a Guardian Ad Litem During Trial

LVT Number: #28558

Landlord sued to evict tenant and her adult son for creating a nuisance in their apartment. After trial, the court ruled for landlord and issued an eviction warrant. But since only the tenant's son engaged in objectionable conduct, the court ruled that the eviction warrant would be stayed against tenant provided that the son move out. Although the son did move out, tenant appealed, claiming that the court should have appointed a guardian ad litem (GAL) to protect the son's rights in court. The appeals court ruled against tenant.
