Case Conclusion Date:September 7, 2010
Practice Area:Landlord / Tenant
Outcome:tenants not evicted
Description:Landlord/mother of tenant doesn't like her tenant/son's wife and has repeatedly tried to evict the couple. This time, she filed a false police report accusing the son of pulling a gun on her, and tried to evict the couple on the ground that her son made a death threat against her. After a jury saw the history of angry letters between the mother and the son, always ending "Why don't you move?", and heard the mother's inconsistent testimony, they knew the mother was lying about the gun. Jury voted 10-2 in favor of the son and his wife.
