Material Girl ... Soon To be Homeless?

Just last week I gave my property students a practice problem about "purple pain for Prince's landlord." (You never know when a propertyprof post from years and years ago will come in handy).  Now I see that Madonna's being sued by a neighbor (in the Dakota?) for disturbing her neighbors.  Sounds like the makin's of a great class discussion.

Another case that could be in the law of people magazine, no doubt.

Actually, the lawsuit is against the landlord (i.e., the co-op board), not Madonna. I'm guessing that, if the parties are all tenants, then the suit likely asserts a breach of the implied warranty of habitability. Since the neighbor hasn't vacated the premises yet, she couldn't assert a breach of the covenant of quiet enjoyment. A tenancy dispute exam hypo in the making!
