Rent-Stabilized Tenant Didn't Comply with Document Production Order

Landlord sued to evict rent-stabilized tenant for nonprimary residence. When tenant failed to comply with an agreement to produce certain documents during pretrial questioning, landlord asked the court to strike tenant's answer and defenses. The court ruled for landlord and struck tenant's answer unless he produced the documents in question. Tenant appealed and lost. Tenant failed to comply with the court-ordered discovery even after the lower court gave him more time to do so.
