Real Estate and Property Law
What Is Property Law?
Property and Real Estate law deals with lawsuits that arise between parties who are in a dispute over situations ranging from breach of contracts in lease agreements, to disputes between neighbors. Amazon was involved in a legal dispute over property when Amazon wanted to rent commercial space. This is what occurred in DOLP v. Amazon Corporate.1 When Amazon did not follow through on a Letter of Intent agreement, DOLP Properties filed suit.2 Amazon.com’s greatest argument in this situation was to claim that the plaintiffs failed to state a claim.
- DOLP 1133 Props. II LLC v Amazon Corporate, LLC, 2015 N.Y. Misc. LEXIS 3019 (N.Y. Sup. Ct. Aug. 17, 2015).
This was a property infringement claim between Amazon Corporate, LLC and Plaintiff DOLP 1133 Properties II LLC. The court denied Plaintiff punitive damages and attorneys’ fees, dismissed breach of good faith claim, and upheld the fraud claim.
