Trial by Judge or Trial by Jury?

Postby Upper_West_Side » Tue Jul 14, 2009 1:10 pm

I am a rent-stabilized tenant. My landlord instituted a holdover proceeding on grounds of non-primary residence. Despite the jury waiver in my lease, there is case law that says I can demand and receive a jury trial. Should I do that, or take my chances with the judge? Thanks.

Is this a real non-primary case? Or just a disguised holdover? Did you get a proper Golub notice?

And if it's non-primary, no time like now to put your ducks in order (even if innocent) and it's recommended to speak and/or retain an experienced tenant lawyer (not someone who claims to do tenant law).
