Long Island Man Hasn’t Paid His Mortgage in 20 Years Dodges Eviction Again


52-year-old Guramrit Hanspal hasn’t coughed up a dime to live in his East Meadow home since making a single mortgage payment in 1998, but ducked eviction for decades by filing lawsuits and bankruptcies, records show. The home, which was foreclosed on years ago, is now owned by Diamond Ridge Partners, which hauled Hanspal into court in a bid to finally boot him from the property. At a Wednesday hearing in Nassau County court, Judge William A. Hohauser agreed to delay the case after Hanspal’s attorney, William D. Friedman, requested more time, claiming his co-counsel, David Gevanter, had been hired the day before. “This is the last of approximately 40 attorneys who have appeared on the eve of a hearing,” exasperated Diamond Ridge lawyer Jordan Katz told the judge. “This is very typical of the defendant — he recycles lawyers to buy himself more time,” said Max Sold, who works for Diamond Ridge. “This guy is basically mocking the courts.”
