civil action – law

franklin suites, llc, Plaintiff, vs. isaac guest, Defendant Case No.: 4175 of 2020  

NOW COMES Franklin Suites, LLC, Plaintiff, and hereby files this Pretrial Memorandum, and for cause would show this Honorable Court as follows:

  2. Plaintiff Franklin Suites, LLC is a limited liability company registered in the State of Pennsylvania and whose registered business address is 316 E. 6th Ave, Tarentum, PA 15084.
  3. Defendant Isaac Guest is a male adult of sound mind and a resident of 3 E. Division St., Jeannette, PA 15544.
  • Jurisdiction exists in this Court pursuant to 1 Pa. C.S. § 931.
  • Venue is proper in this Court because the causes of action took place in Westmoreland County.
  • Plaintiff and Defendant entered into a lease that allowed Defendant to live on Plaintiff’s property from 06/01/2020 to 05/31/2021.
  • On 05/31/2021, the lease expired and Defendant had to be evicted for damage to property.
  • Which kind of damage did Defendant cause on the property?
  • Why did you take Defendant to court? Did he refuse to leave the property after the expiry of his lease?
  •  Did Defendant pay the rent on time?
  • The case was taken to arbitration. After all proceedings, the Board of Arbitration issued judgment in favor of Plaintiff in the sum of $12,000.00 payable by Defendant and possession of the property.
  • The learned Magistrate Judge also affirmed the judgment issued by the Board of Arbitration.
  • The lease agreement between Plaintiff and Defendant clearly stipulated that it would run until 05/31/2021. Afterwards, Defendant would have to move out and surrender possession to Plaintiff. On 05/31/2021, the lease came to an end as specified in the lease agreement.
  • The lease agreement also stated as follows: “This lease shall terminate in the event that the premises are destroyed, other than negligence of the tenant, or upon taking of the property under legal authority of eminent domain.” Defendant caused damage to property in the form described above. The lease also had to terminate due to damage caused to property.
  • Plaintiff was considerate enough to let Defendant complete the term of his lease despite the damage to property he had caused.
  • Defendant had no reason to refuse to surrender possession to Plaintiff.
  • After analysis of facts, the Board of Arbitration and the learned Magistrate Judge ruled in favor of Plaintiff and awarded him possession of the property. Plaintiff urges this court to adopt the ruling and judgment of the Board of Administration and the Magistrate Judge.

REASONS WHEREFORE, Plaintiff respectfully requests this Honorable Court to grant it the following reliefs:

  1. Judgment in favor of Plaintiff;
  2. Grant Plaintiff damages awarded by the Board of Arbitration in the sum of $12,000.00;
  3. Award Plaintiff punitive damages, pre and post judgment interests, costs of this suit, and attorney fees as allowed by law;
  4. Award Plaintiff such equitable relief as may be appropriate under the circumstances; and
  5. Award such further relief as this Honorable Court deems necessary and proper.

Dated this [DATE] day of [MONTH], 2021.
