She also claimed that the tenant and landlord engaged in an illusory prime tenancy and filed a separate complaint seeking a lease in her name. The DRA ruled that tenant had overcharged the subtenant and ordered tenant to refund $2,493, including triple damages. But the DRA denied the subtenant's lease complaint.
