Tenant's Illegal Lockout Claim Dismissed
LVT Number: #30871
Tenant sued landlord in 2015, claiming illegal lockout and breach of the warranty of habitability. Tenant also sought $1 million in damages. Although tenant filed the case in State Supreme Court, the court transferred the case to the Civil Court. Tenant then claimed that he was trial-ready and landlord asked the court for permission to amend its answer to include additional defenses.
