Tenant Who Assaulted Building Doorman Can Be Evicted for Nuisance
LVT Number: #28522
Landlord sued to evict rent-stabilized tenant for creating a nuisance. Landlord and tenant signed a settlement agreement putting tenant on probation for some period. During that period, tenant agreed not to resume objectionable conduct or else he could be evicted. Landlord later went back to court, claiming that tenant violated the settlement agreement. The court ruled for landlord after a hearing. Tenant appealed and lost. Tenant directed profanities and offensive ethnic epithets at the building doorman during the probation period.
