WI Court of Appeals District IV

Case Name: David J. Mashak v. Morgan Leis

Case No.: 2018AP686

Officials: LUNDSTEN, P.J.

Focus: Breach of Lease Agreement Damages

David Mashak appeals a judgment against his former tenant, Morgan Leis. Mashak brought a small claims suit against Leis for unpaid rent, clean up, and repairs. The circuit court awarded damages to Mashak, although the amount was significantly less than what Mashak sought. On appeal, Mashak contends that the circuit court erroneously failed to award him damages for certain categories of damage that Mashak claimed Leis caused to the property. I reject Mashak's arguments, and affirm the circuit court.
