Representative Cases

The First Department affirmed the lower court’s dismissal of a Yellowstone action where plaintiff did not timely seek relief as the tenant did not make its application until after the applicable cure period had expired and the notice of termination had been served. In so finding, the First Department adopted the Second Department’s rule that a Yellowstone application brought after the expiration of the applicable cure period though prior to the actual termination of the lease is untimely. The First Department affirmed the dismissal of an action against a managing agent where a shareholder claimed that the managing agent of a land lease Coop owed an affirmative duty to “to speak accurately and honestly” when it responded to his counsel’s question whether maintenance fees for the cooperative apartment he was contemplating purchasing were expected to increase, and that it breached this duty when it responded, “Unknown”.

In a case involving a shareholder’s challenge to a Coop election on multiple grounds, the Appellate Division affirmed the dismissal of the case as moot as the next regularly-scheduled election for the cooperative’s board of directors was held prior to the appeal. The Court also noted that were it to reach the merits, the petitioner’s arguments were unavailing.
