City Can Block Short-Term Stays at Apartment Buildings Pending Lawsuit
LVT Number: #24711
The City of New York sued landlords for deceptive trade practices under the consumer protection law, and for public nuisance. The city claimed that landlords operated a multi-tiered business that advertised, booked, operated, and maintained transient accommodations for short-term stays of less than 30 days in 50 or more Class A multiple dwellings. The city sought a preliminary injunction against landlords while the case was pending.
