'Res Judicata' Precluded Tenant's Claim to Continue Operating
Facts: The owner of retail space sent a notice informing its tenant that it was in breach of the lease because it hadn’t installed a fire alarm system. The tenant refused to install a system, and the owner was fined by the city. The owner filed a petition with a court to evict the tenant. A judge ruled in favor of the owner in that declaratory judgment action.
