Failure to Complete Improvements Is Grounds for Eviction
What Happened: On Jan. 6, an airport authority assigned a lease to a hotel tenant requiring the latter to install a full-service bar, swimming pool, and other improvements and operate under a nationally recognized chain brand name by Dec. 31. But the hotel met neither obligation and the authority sent an eviction notice. The hotel denied that it had defaulted on the lease and continued to send rent payments each month. The Indiana court sided with the authority, and the hotel appealed.
