It took me a while to figure out what your question really is. but I have
and answer.Basically the courts are designed for landlords, and most
of the judges are pro landlord. Thats why landlords created summary judgement
proceedings that could be done within days, rather then go thru a full
trial with a jury ectera.Basically, all the legal stuff can be figured
out I used a book publised by nolo and others how to represent yourself
in court . it expalins all the procedures of the court for non-lawyers.
its at

: I did ask my atty, but did not quite understand the answer: too many references in Legalese... not my native language!
: Non-payment with 'fatal defects' on Petition: trial date: soon, too soon...

: If landlord 'rests' its primia facia case with bad/missing data/papers and judge denies motion to dismiss, can LL 'reopen' or 'update' or otherwise correct/amend them in rebuttal?
: My reading: my atty: no, not really... LL atty: yes.

: If it is caselaw: both can be correct answers & the result will depend on knowledge & skill of closing argument, but if it is statute, there is only one answer?
