Appellate Division of the Supreme Court of New York, First Department
May 30, 1989
150 A.D.2d 993 (N.Y. App. Div. 1989)

Summary

In Gardner v. Knight, 124 Ala. 273, 27 So. 298, it was ruled that the grantor had no remedy save by way of action at law; but the authorities elsewhere are well-nigh unanimous that the remedy at law affords no substantial relief. Mr. Pomeroy (section 2108) says: "Legal relief by periodic suits for damages is manifestly inadequate."
