So one of my loyal readers wanted to know if I heard anything about landlord-tenant victories in San Francisco lately. Well after looking around a little bit I am happy to announce that two tenants were able to get some justice in the courts.
Mary Williams and Michael McGuinness, who were represented by the Law Offices of Mary Catherine Wiederhold and the Law Offices of William E. Shapiro, recently forced the settlement on the day of trial. Williams and McGuinness alleged constructive eviction against their landlord after having to suffer for more than two years because of their downstairs neighbor. This neighbor was, allegedly, a methamphetamine dealer. The landlord denied all knowledge. The defendants agreed to a robust six figure settlement. The case was before the San Francisco Superior Court in February.”
