One of our own ContractsProf bloggers is quoted in this story, about a spate of reversals for a judge in Manhattan:
Contract law and leases are not necessarily any more complex in New York than in other states, despite the rabid real estate market and complaints that tenants have unusually powerful rights under laws governing leases in New York City. One thing that can make it more challenging is that there is simply a bigger volume of decisional law in New York courts than in other states.
“That has the potential to make things more complicated,” says Meredith Miller, a professor at Touro Law School who teaches contracts.
