Magistrate Judge Maas http://nycourts.law.com/CourtDocumentViewer.asp?view=Document&docID=44383 DEFENDANT OWNED two units in a cooperative apartment building. Plaintiff cooperative corporation contended that defendant was renting out these units in violation of her proprietary lease. The sole remaining dispute between the parties arose out of a settlement agreement that the parties entered into pursuant to which defendant agreed to not have any overnight guests in her apartments for more than two weeks in any six-month period, and that such guests could be present only when she was “contemporaneously physically there.” Plaintiff contended that defendant violated the agreement by having an individual stay in her apartment for a period exceeding two weeks during which she was not also present. The court then issued an order requiring defendant to show cause why she should not be adjudicated in contempt for violating the agreement and a previous order. The court, among other things, directed a fine against defendant for plaintiff’s legal fees in the amount of $32,916.
