Landlord's Request to Dismiss Proposed Class Action Was Premature
LVT Number: #30912
Tenants of four buildings sued landlord for improper deregulation and rent overcharge in a proposed class action lawsuit. Tenants claimed that all four building were enrolled in the J-1 tax benefit program and that the building owner entities were all related to one landlord and therefore under common control. Landlord asked the court to dismiss the case, claiming that the individual tenants didn't have enough in common with one another to warrant class treatment.
