Case Caption: Peppertree Terrace (Appellant/Plaintiff) v. Cheryl Williams (Appellee/DefendantCase Number: S.CT.Civ. No.: 2007-099Date: 07/01/2009Author: Cabret, Maria M. Citation: Summary:

Cheryl Williams owns a mobile home located in the Peppertree Terrace mobile home community on St. Croix. Peppertree Terrace sued Williams in the Small Claims Division of the Superior Court alleging that she owed several thousand dollars in past due rent for occupying the lot in the community. After a bench trial, the trial court found that Peppertree Terrace's claim lacked merit and dismissed the claim. Peppertree Terrace filed this appeal asserting that the trial court erred in dismissing its claim because the evidence presented at trial showed that Williams failed to pay past due rent. We agree with Peppertree Terrace that the trial court erred in dismissing its claim and accordingly reverse the trial court's dismissal.
