It seems like every week there is someone from the Real Housewives of New Jersey in court. This week, it was Joe and Melissa back again trying to evict Kai Patterson from their Montville home. purchase agreement. In accordance with a previous ruling, it was expected that Patterson would finally be forced to leave the home where he currently lives with his (step?) father; however, the judge declined to evict him.
Superior Court Judge Stephen Taylor vacated the previous ruling that found Patterson in default on the lease because the motion was not heard in open court as New Jersey law requires when an option to buy a leased property is involved. Because Gorga tried to file the eviction pro se, he was unaware of the applicable law. That makes sense except for the fact that a judge, if not this judge ruled to evict and one would think the judge would be versed in the law. Apparently, the option to buy makes the applicable laws those concerning the sale of property rather than those governing rental property laws.
Joe also failed to include Melissa’s name on the lease and brought the eviction proceeding against Patterson personally rather than his company who is technically the renter/purchaser listed on the contract. They got all of that straightened out. Joe has a lawyer now and a new trial date has been set for a week from Friday. Joe didn’t even show up in court this week. Will Patterson actually be evicted? Or will he continuous to live blissfully ensconced in Grey Gardens with his beaver friends? I’ve actually never heard a guy complain about free beaver before. I’ll let you know.
