NYCHA Can't Evict Tenant After Gun and Marijuana Found in Apartment
LVT Number: #24438
NYCHA terminated tenant's lease for nondesirability and breach of building rules after a firearm was recovered from, and marijuana was seen in, tenant's apartment. Tenant filed an Article 78 appeal, claiming that NYCHA's decision was unreasonable. The court ruled for tenant. Tenant had lived in the building for 23 years, was a single mother of five children, including two minors. Tenant wasn't present during the apartment search and hadn't been charged with any crime.
