I just got a new case with (partner). It’s a landlord-tenant case in which we represent the landlord. As partners will do, (partner) just dropped the complaint on my desk this morning and asked me to analyze it and be ready to talk to the client this afternoon.
It’s a roach infestation claim. Causes of action are negligence, nuisance, breach of implied warranty of habitability, and constructive eviction.
First thing I did is type this search into Trellis: roach AND “constructive eviction.” I got 5 hits from 4 cases: https://trellis.law/search?q=roach+AND+%22constructive+eviction%22. They all look really good. Can’t think of any other way I could have more effectively prepared for this call."
