Ortiz, Frances A.
Post-judgment Motion by Landlord
Judgment for Tenant
Tenant Substantially Won
Landlord asked the court to issue a final judgment of possession in the landlord's favor following the tenant's second alleged violation of the parties' earlier stipulation which required the tenant to cease violating his lease and to abide by the terms of the stipulation for one year. Following a hearing on the second alleged violation, the court found that the landlord failed to establish by a preponderance of the evidence that the second breach occurred. The court found the tenant's witness more credible than the landlord's witness, who testified that someone brandished a gun in the tenant's apartment but did not report the incident to police or provide any supporting documentation of his account.
