Following negotiations, the parties settled the action via a stipulation whereby the tenant conceded her non-primary resident status; permitting the owner to obtain a judgment of possession and an order of ejectment, but staying the actual eviction. The stay would be continued until the August 31st following the tenant's death "so long as [the tenant] continues to occupy the subject apartment during her lifetime at least a portion of the calendar year." The stipulation further provided that: "[the tenant] need not occupy the subject apartment as her primary residence so long as she continues to occupy in same at least a portion of the calendar year."
In this chapter, the authors are careful to distinguish between the formal expropriations (which affected relatively few because of the extreme land concentration) and the actual evictions. Nearly overnight, the latter drove thousands of small property owners and workers with long-held land use rights out of their homes, dumping them onto barren lands also taken by the military.
