Jay Max Sportswear v. The Gallery At Fulton Street

The firm advised its client, an owner of a shopping center, that it could lock out a store-owner as an expedient means of recovering possession of a store, instead of enduring the lengthy and often-frustrating eviction process. The store-owner sued to be restored to possession and for money damages, but the landlord prevailed in a written decision upholding the landlord’s action. The case garnered substantial publicity in the legal community and was the subject of an article in the New York Law Journal.
