LVT Number: #24618

Tenant filed an Article 78 court appeal, claiming that HPD's decision was arbitrary and unreasonable. The court ruled against tenant. There was substantial proof that tenant intentionally failed to disclosed over $93,000 in income over the course of four years. Tenant in fact admitted that she "significantly underreported" her income for several years.
