Attorney Michael S. Pascazi Secures a Court Order Reducing a Condominium Fine from $40,000.00 to $200.00
The case involved a Condominium Board of Managers seeking a fine of $40,000.00 and growing at the rate of $100.00 per day, against Pascazi Law Offices PLLC’s client, for a violation of the Condominium’s By-Laws, relating to the keeping of pets on the property.
The Condominium moved the N.Y.S. Supreme Court for a Declaratory Judgment finding the $40,000.00 fine as lawful. Attorney Pascazi cross moved for a Declaratory Judgment finding the $40,000.00 fine as un-lawful, and finding that the maximum fine allowed by the By-Laws, under the circumstances, to be $200.00.
