Waystack Frizzell Argues at the Supreme Court

Waystack Frizzell’s associate, Attorney Sandra Cabrera, argued at the New Hampshire Supreme Court on January 16, 2013.  Waystack Frizzell represented a tenant who was illegally evicted from her apartment after her five-year tenancy.  The trial court below ruled in favor of our client, finding that she was entitled to damages under the landlord-tenant statute RSA 540-A.  The defendant appealed this decision, arguing that because it purchased the property at a foreclosure sale and was not the original party to the lease agreement, it did not fit the statute’s definition of “landlord.”  To view the argument, Click Here.

Supreme Court Affirms the Lower Court’s Dismissal of the Balsams Case

Andy Martin sued several entities, including the Coos County Planning Board and the NH Attorney General, asking the court to reverse the sale of the Balsams resort to North Country residents Daniel Dagasse and Daniel Hebert.  The trial court dismissed the case, ruling that Andy Martin, a resident of New York, did not have the right, or “standing,” to bring this lawsuit.  Andy Martin then appealed this decision to the New Hampshire Supreme Court.  Recently, the Supreme Court summarily adopted the lower court’s decision dismissing the case based on “standing.”  Waystack Frizzell represented the Coos County Planning Board in this lawsuit, joining the other parties in filing motions to dismiss.
