(a)

A claim by a landlord for contractual damages which is brought subsequent to an action by the landlord for the summary eviction of a tenant from commercial premises; or

(b)

An action by a landlord for the summary eviction of a tenant from commercial premises which is brought subsequent to a claim by the landlord for contractual damages.
