"The Smell of Pot, the Scent of a Lawsuit"
The building reeked of marijuana. Board members blamed the smell on unit-owners Josefina Henriquez-Berman and her son Charlie, who lived in Apartment 1S, in the 19-story, 414-unit Manhattan building. More troublesome to some, however, was that they were deadbeats who owed $12,000 in unpaid common charges. After repeated warnings and fines, the condominium sued them to recover the unpaid money and to stop them from smoking pot in their apartment and allowing the smoke to escape into common areas and other apartments.
