132.36 Where notice is provided under section 617.81, subdivision
133.1 4, that an abatement of a nuisance is sought and the
133.2 circumstances that are the basis for the requested abatement
133.3 involved the acts of a commercial or residential tenant or

133.5 that is subject to the abatement proceeding may file before the
133.6 court that has jurisdiction over the abatement proceeding a
133.7 motion to cancel the lease or otherwise secure restitution of
133.8 the premises from the tenant or lessee who has maintained or
133.9 conducted the nuisance. The owner may assign to the prosecuting
133.10 attorney the right to file this motion. In addition to the

133.12 of a nuisance as defined in section 617.81, subdivision 2, by a
133.13 tenant or lessee, is an additional ground authorized by law for
133.14 seeking the cancellation of a lease or the restitution of the

133.16 served in a manner that is sufficient under the Rules of Civil
133.17 Procedure and chapter 566.
133.18 It is no defense to a motion under this section by the

133.22 provided in this section.
133.23 Upon a finding by the court that the tenant or lessee has
133.24 maintained or conducted a nuisance in any portion of the
133.25 building, the court shall order cancellation of the lease or
133.26 tenancy and grant restitution of the premises to the owner. The
133.27 court must not order abatement of the premises if the court:
133.28 (a) cancels a lease or tenancy and grants restitution of
133.29 that portion of the premises to the owner; and
133.30 (b) further finds that the act or acts constituting the
133.31 nuisance as defined in section 617.81, subdivision 2, were
133.32 committed by the tenant or lessee whose lease or tenancy has
133.33 been canceled pursuant to this section and the tenant or lessee
133.34 was not committing the act or acts in conjunction with or under
133.35 the control of the owner.

134.14 ANIMAL PRODUCTS.]
134.15 The Board of Veterinary Medicine shall study and issue a
