New York City, NY – The Frank Law Firm is pleased to announce the latest summary judgment in favor of their client. Not only does this summary judgment add to their track record of success, but it also affects the future of commercial real estate law in NYC Post-Covid.

According to the summary judgment order, questions of fact remain as to the landlord’s required efforts in mitigating unpaid rent after a client breached the lease, stopped paying, and vacated the premises.

The Case

Frank Law Firm represented the defendant, a commercial tenant. The case made it to the Supreme Court of the State of New York, where Honorable Lyle E. Frank reviewed statements and evidence. The judge also reviewed leases between Frank Law Firm’s client and the plaintiff landlord in addition to a lease from the previous landlord. According to the order, “There are questions of fact that exist.” Hon. Frank goes on to review the existence of the leases and acknowledge the plaintiff’s statement before continuing, “These maters at the very least require further discovery before this Court would be able to determine that no fact question exists [sic].” 

Summary Judgment

A summary judgment is when a judge reviews evidence and statements without going to trial. The purpose is to avoid a drawn-out court battle for simple cases between two parties where there is no dispute about the facts. It counts as a final decision in the case.
