Tenant's Husband Arrested with Drugs
LVT Number: 9499
Landlord sued to evict tenant based on her husband's illegal drug activity. The court ruled for landlord, and tenant appealed. Tenant claimed that her husband didn't live with her. The appeals court ruled against tenant. The trial court had fairly found from the proof presented that husband had access to the apartment and that there was drug activity in the building. Husband had been arrested in a store in the building, carrying marked money and 60 vials of crack. Husband had stated that he lived in the apartment, and landlord's property manager confirmed this.
