Apartment Used for Sale of Drugs
LVT Number: 14841
Landlord NYCHA dismissed tenant from her position as a supervisor of housing caretakers. Tenant appealed landlord's decision. The court and appeals court ruled against tenant. There was substantial proof that tenant used illegal drugs and allowed her son to use her apartment to sell drugs. The NYCHA reasonably based its decision on credible evidence, and their decision was fair.
