Seattle Premium Outlets

Apr 30 2008

I bought some clothes. Sometimes I don’t look like such a slob anymore. We spent what seems like all of our waking time together discussing how to get out of that apartment, researching the law, talking to helpful friends and volunteers and friends of friends, starting our apartment search all over again, and despairing. Eventually we left, and hoped that a judge would agree that we were justified in using the Seattle law that says tenants can move out if the landlord refuses to remedy a “defective condition.” The judge did agree, and I walked out of the courtroom feeling similar to the way I did when I tried riding a bike for half an hour in the St. Louis summer first thing in the morning without eating or drinking anything.
