Represented Prepayd Wireless in connection with a dispute arising out of its commercial lease. Prepayd, the tenant with respect to the lease at issue, was sued by its landlord for breach of lease and rent due and owing after Prepayd surrendered possession of the premises based on the plaintiff-landlord’s interference with Prepayd’s right to quiet enjoyment. The landlord filed a demurrer seeking to dismiss Prepayd’s entire cross-complaint for constructive eviction and related claims. At the hearing, the judge overruled the landlord’s demurrer in its entirety, citing the arguments in our opposition brief and noting on the record that Prepayd successfully pled a claim for constructive eviction which, if proved at trial, would cut off Prepayd’s duty to pay rent starting on the date Prepayd surrendered possession of the premises. Settlement discussions are ongoing.
