Harwood Capital Corporation v. Carey

A condominium landlord sought to evict a tenant and her co-tenant based on excessive smoking, which the landlord believed created a nuisance for other tenants. The tenant argued that any problems due to cigarette smoke were caused by the landlord’s failure to keep the unit in good condition. At trial, the jury ruled in favor of the landlord. In a later decision, a court denied the tenant’s request for a new trial. The tenant subsequently moved out so the landlord’s claim for possession of the property was no longer relevant.
