(Decision submitted by Manhattan attorney Adam Leitman Bailey, who represented the landlord.)
Landlord sued to evict tenant for keeping a dog, in violation of her lease. Tenant then filed a discrimination complaint with HUD. Tenant asked the court to delay the eviction case while she pursued her discrimination claim. The court ruled for tenant but limited the delay to six months. The court ordered tenant to request a speedy resolution from HUD in light of the pending court case.
