Case Settled in Court
LVT Number: 11688
(Decision submitted by James R. Marino of the Manhattan law firm of Kucker Kraus & Bruh, LLP, attorneys for the landlord.) Tenant complained of a reduction in required services. The DRA ruled for tenant and reduced his rent. Landlord appealed and pointed out that a court stipulation dated December 17, 1992, settled all pending proceedings between landlord and tenant. Landlord argued that tenant should have withdrawn his complaint. The DHCR ruled for landlord and revoked the rent cut. Tenant's DHCR complaint was filed on December 14, 1992, which was prior to the court stipulation date. So that complaint was one of the proceedings settled by the court stipulation.
