In this bawdy house case, the respondents demanded a trial by jury, and the petitioner moved to strike that demand, on the basis of a waiver included in the lease. The court found in favor of the respondents, affirming the right to a jury trial on the grounds that the right is so fundamental that courts must indulge every reasonable presumption against waiver. Published as 2475 Hughes Ave. Realty Corp. v. Gonzalez, 28 Misc.3d 266 (Civil Court, City of New York, Bronx County 2010)
