The parties’ commercial lease did not allow the plaintiff-tenant to renew the lease, yet plaintiff’s complaint challenged only the defendant-landlord’s actions following the expiration of the lease term (i.e., the landlord’s repossession and demolition of the asbestos-contaminated premises). Although the tenant contends an order staying the appeal of the landlord’s ejectment action allowed her to continue to occupy the premises, this argument is without merit. Once the lease term expired, the ejectment action became moot.
We affirm the circuit court’s grand of the landlord’s motion to dismiss.
