Lam v. Griffel

December 5, 2008

VAN LAM AND SHARON LAM, PLAINTIFFS-RESPONDENTS,
v.
GIORA GRIFFEL, DEFENDANT-APPELLANT.



On appeal from the Superior Court of New Jersey, Law Division-Special Civil Part, Hudson County, Docket No. SC-2908-07.

Per curiam.

NOT FOR PUBLICATION WITHOUT THE APPROVAL OF THE APPELLATE DIVISION

Submitted: November 19, 2008

Before Judges Cuff and Fisher.

Plaintiffs Van and Sharon Lam filed an application to rent an apartment in Jersey City and left a deposit with defendant Giora Griffel. When their application was approved, defendant forwarded a lease to plaintiffs, which they did not execute. They claimed the terms differed from those discussed prior to submission of their application. When defendant refused to return their deposit, they filed a complaint seeking return of the deposit.

Following a bench trial, Judge Iglesias found there was no meeting of the minds on the terms of the lease and entered judgment in the amount of $1900 plus $22 in costs in favor of plaintiffs. We affirm. The judgment is based on findings of fact which are adequately supported by the evidence. R. 2:11-3(e)(1)(A).

Affirmed.
