PLEASE NOTE: this it is not a school related job I need someone to write me a motion/document addressed to the court. It should not be a legal memo simply. You should be arguing and including a strong opinion to why the court should not allow a nonredeemable judgement against our client (even if the case law doesn't clear;y support this) I am looking for a strong public policy argument and it should be styled in a law review manner. The document should make a very strong case for concluding that a nonredeemable judgment is not appropriate based on public policy (what the law should or should not be) . I will provide all cases relevant to DC so you won't have to do extensive legal research (we have that already). But you may still do research on jurisdictions outside of DC/MD to support your argument further. The main DC case we are supporting our legal research on is Trans-Lux Radio City Corp. v. Service Parking Corp., 54 A.2d 144 (D.C. 1947). Question - Why is it bad policy or contrary to law (or unconscionable) for the courts to allow a Nonredeemable Judgment for Possession of a Cooperative Unit for someone who has a Proprietary Lease and Occupancy Agreement (compared to an apartment with a residential lease). (Please note: The Proprietary Lease and Occupancy Agreement has provisions that allow for a Nonredeemable Judgment for Possession in the event of non-payment). A FACT Pattern and more context are attached. The legal research will be provided to whomever is selected for the job.
