Tenants Seeking Rent Stabilization Status Can Proceed with Class Action
LVT Number: #30842
Tenants brought a proposed class action lawsuit against landlord, claiming that they were improperly deregulated. Landlord claimed that a class action would be improper. The court ruled against landlord, and found that the action by over 100 tenants seeking rent stabilization status through a class action was proper. Additional questions about the status should be reserved until the case discovery period.
