A lawsuit Madonna filed against the co-operative board of her New York City home has reportedly been dismissed.
The One West 64th Street co-operative board members, who run the Harperley Hall building in Manhattan’s historic Central Park West district, changed the rules of the lease agreement on the Material Girl hitmaker’s $7.3 million apartment in 2014, upsetting the singer.
The new rules state that her children and domestic employees cannot live in the unit unless she is “in residence” at the time.
In April, 2016, Madonna began a legal challenge against the new building agreement, but the case has now been dismissed. According to the New York Post’s Page Six, Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Gerald Lebovits ruled Madonna waited too long to file the lawsuit.
“(Madonna) had four months from April 2, 2014, to commence… a proceeding,” he wrote. “But (she) commenced this action on April 1, 2016, more than two years later.”
However, the judge has ruled Madonna can continue her legal quest to obtain documents from the board and legal fees.
