LVT Number: #31303

Tenant sued landlord NYCHA, seeking apartment repairs. In February 2019, the court ordered landlord to repair mold and plaster issues. Some scheduled repairs were missed in 2019 and, after tenant was diagnosed with asthma in May 2019, tenant amended her complaint and claimed that NYCHA violated the Fair Housing Act and federal regulations. NYCHA completed repairs in 2020, and asked the court to dismiss tenant's amended lawsuit. The court ruled for landlord.
