The Hospitality Alliance successfully advocated for anti-commercial tenant harassment legislation, which allows commercial tenants, such as restaurants, to sue their landlord for tenant harassment when committed with intent to cause the tenant to vacate the leased property or to surrender a right held under the lease agreement. The law allows courts to impose a maximum $10,000 fine on harassing landlords, in addition to money damages and other relief for tenants who have been victims of the harassment.
