Ruling Could Give Landlord Less Leeway in No-Pet Clauses

Here's a summary of a story, Ruling Could Give Landlord Less Leeway in No-Pet Clauses, in the online edition of today's New York Law Journal:

The split decision in Seward Park Housing Corp. v. Carol Cohen, 2600, found that landlords are assumed to know that a tenant owns a pet if the landlord's employees, such as a superintendent or janitors, are aware of the pet - no matter whether the landlord lives elsewhere.
