2 Riverside Drive LLC
Doctor Marcus Truth
Pre-answer Motion by Landlord
Landlord Substantially Won
The landlord sued the tenant for unpaid rent from October 2021 through August 2023. The court granted the landlord's motion for default judgment against the tenant for $40,425, plus costs and disbursements. The court also allowed the landlord to seek an additional judgment for attorney fees, but the amount will be determined later based on further documentation. Key legal points: The tenant did not appear in court. The landlord established that the tenant was a month-to-month tenant after the expiration of their lease. The landlord provided evidence of the unpaid rent amount. The court was skeptical of the landlord's requested attorney fees of $20,000 and required further documentation.
