Court of Appeals Grants Leave to Appeal in Case Involving Enforceability of Deed Covenant to Provide Free Electricity

On October 17, 2017, the Court of Appeals granted leave to appeal in Niagara Mohawk Power Corp. v. Allied Healthcare Products, Inc. The case concerns the enforceability of a deed covenant requiring the provision of free electrical power to mills located on a related parcel owned by the defendant. We previously blogged about the Third Department’s decision, which declared the covenant unenforceable, reversing a decision of Justice Platkin of the Albany County Commercial Division.
