Study each of the following cases carefully. Briefly state the principle of law and your decision.
Landlord Responsibility Harmon, the owner of a suburban house, rented it for one year to Wagner and his wife, who had just moved into the city from another state. Two months after moving into the house, the Wagners divorced, and both husband and wife moved to smaller facilities. The house remained vacant for 10 months. At the end of one year, Harmon brought suit to collect the rent for these 10 months. Harmon protested, claiming that the landlord should have tried to rent to someone else. The landlord said that it was Harmon’s responsibility to sublease the house. Is it likely that Harmon would be successful in his suit?
