Young v. Weaver

Alabama Court of Civil Appeals

883 So. 2d 234 (2003)

Facts

Kim Young (defendant) and her friend were both 18 and therefore younger than Alabama’s age of majority, which was 19. The young women wanted to try living on their own, so they signed a 10-month lease on an apartment owned by Phillip Weaver (plaintiff). No adult cosigned the lease. Young stayed at the apartment and paid her share of the rent for two months before deciding to abandon the apartment and go home to live with her parents, who willingly accepted her return. Before Young did so, her dog caused several hundred dollars’ worth of damage to the apartment. After Young left the apartment, she made no further payments to Weaver. Weaver sued Young to collect eight months’ rent and reimbursement for the dog’s damage. The small-claims court ruled in Weaver’s favor. Young appealed. A circuit court tried the matter de novo and also ruled for Weaver. Young appealed to the Alabama Court of Civil Appeals.
