Landlords and Managing Agents - Dismissal of Hurricane Sandy Class Action
Representing three defendant/owner-landlords and five defendant managing agents of rental properties, located in downtown Manhattan, in a putative bi-lateral class action brought by three plaintiffs seeking rent reimbursement for loss of electricity and other services during Hurricane Sandy.  Plaintiffs purported to represent a class of all similarly situated tenants in the State of New York against our clients, who were sued individually and as named representatives for a putative defendant class of all similarly situated landlords and managing agents in the State of New York.  We successfully obtained dismissal of the complaint on a pre-class certification motion for summary judgment  made prior to any discovery, asserting that the class claims as pled failed to satisfy the statutory requisites of a class action.
