Tenant Sues for Harassment, Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C. Wins for Landlord and Obtains Attorney Fee Award
When a landlord sought Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C.’s help after his tenant commenced a harassment proceeding, the attorneys at Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C. defended the landlord, prevailed on the case, and were awarded legal fees.
This case demonstrates the shortcomings of an overly aggressive attorney pushing a weak position and getting punished for it.
A tenant alleged that her landlord used force, threatened the use of force or implied the use of force; repeatedly brought court cases against her for no good reason; and repeatedly caused or permitted acts or omissions that substantially interfered with or disturbed her comfort, peace, and quiet.
The court insisted that petitioner’s allegations did not in fact amount to harassment, which prompted the tenant to agree to withdraw her petition. However, the tenant never followed through with her promise and instead attempted to use aggression to overcome her weak position.
At trial the case was quickly dismissed and the landlord’s motion for legal fees was granted.
Adam Leitman Bailey represented the client in this matter.
