ALBANY, N.Y. - A New York appellate panel on July 11 ruled that a trial court properly determined that a landlord being sued for allegedly allowing a hazardous lead-based paint condition to exist in a premises was not entitled to summary judgment dismissal of the claim because he had failed to show that he did not have actual or constructive notice of the situation (Amanda McDonald v. Lou Farina, No. 13-01098, N.Y. Sup., App. Div., 4th Dept.; 2014 N.Y. App. Div. LEXIS 5213).
