Tenant's Son Wasn't Necessary Party
LVT Number: 8754
Landlord sued to evict tenant for nonpayment of rent. The trial court ruled against landlord. The court dismissed landlord's petition because landlord hadn't named tenant's son as a party in its petition. Landlord appealed, and the appeals court ruled for landlord. The son of the named tenant of record wasn't a necessary party to the nonpayment proceeding.
