In The Dog House

Nassau County District Attorney Kathleen Rice and her Garden City cooperative have reached a settlement that allows Rice to keep her Maltese and Yorkshire terrier mix. When Ms. Rice moved into the co-op in 2006, house rules allowed pets. But unbeknownst to Rice, the rules changed in May 2010 to bar pets that had not been registered before a certain point. Rice adopted Her dog in April 2011. A few months later, the board served Ms. Rice with an eviction notice, to which she responded with a suit for a declaratory judgment blocking the board from terminating her lease. As reported in the NYLJ, the settlement between the parties allowed other occupants of the coop to register, within a certain time period, and keep their pets as well.
