Failure to Operate Parking Lot Continuously Isn't Lease Violation
Facts: The owner leased a parking lot to a tenant, and both agreed that the tenant would use the lot only for off-airport parking and related uses. Subsequently, the tenant opened up a second lot nearby and focused primarily on its operations. Eventually, the tenant moved all of its business to the second lot, but continued to pay the owner for the vacant premises until the lease ended.
The owner sued the tenant, arguing that the tenant violated the lease and devalued the lot by not continuously running a parking lot on the premises.
