Luxury Landlord Wins Attorneys' Fees From Tenants

Posted by Mark Smith on August 05, 1999 at 21:24:47:

From Today's News Update in the New York Law Journal, Friday, August 6th:

The Appellate Term, First Department, has ordered an award of attorney's fees to a Manhattan landlord, declaring him to have been the prevailing party in a long-running dispute over conditions in an Upper East Side luxury apartment building. Civil Court Judge Martin Shulman had ruled in 1997 that neither the landlord, Sheldon H. Solow, nor the tenants of 265 East 66th Street had scored a decisive win, and that each side should therefore pay its own fees. But the Appellate Term panel, noting in a 2-1 decision that the tenants' initial success in obtaining rent abatements was largely nullified by appellate courts, concluded that Mr. Solow had earned the status of prevailing party. Solow v. Bradley.
