NYCHA Tenant's Son Used Apartment for Drug Sales
LVT Number: #30033
Section 8 tenant filed an Article 78 appeal of landlord NYCHA's decision to terminate her Section 8 subsidy. NYCHA terminated tenant's subsidy because her son used the apartment as part of his illegal drug enterprise. The court ruled against tenant, who appealed and lost. There was substantial proof to support the finding that the apartment was being used by an authorized family member as part of illegal drug conduct.
