Gallery At Fulton Street v. Wendnew LLC

After successfully evicting a Wendy’s® franchisee from its client’s shopping center, the firm sued the former tenant for money damages.  The trial court referred the matter to a referee for a computation of damages, but then disagreed with the referee’s large award and set it aside.  Joe appealed to the Appellate Division, which ordered that judgment should be entered in accordance with the referee’s determination.
