Jury Award Stands After Breach of Contract
Facts: A tenant ran several entertainment businesses on the owner's premises. The businesses were unable to make a profit, and the tenant informed the owner that it couldn't pay the rent and removed all of its property from the premises. The owner sued the tenant for unpaid rent, the security deposit, and repairs. After a jury trial, the court ruled in favor of the owner.
The tenant appealed, claiming that the jury award was excessive, based on a statement from a new witness who testified about the condition and value of the property.
