Lien On Mewbsadmin
Shilian v. All Sons Electric is the subject of our second Newsletter. Our client, an electrical contractor, retained us after it was served with legal papers by homeowners challenging the validity of its mechanic’s lien. We argued that the Judge had the inherent equitable power to back date the lien extension so that it was still enforceable. You can find the Judge’s wise opinion in the law books at Matter of Shilian v All Sons Elec. Corp., No. 601994/16, 51 Misc. 3d 1221(A), 41 N.Y.S.3d 452, 2016 N.Y. Slip Op. 50756(U), 2016 WL 2842752 (Sup Ct, May 09, 2016). For a quick peek, click on the link.
