New York Law Journal

The New York Law Journal reported on Herrickā€™s representation of the Rent Stabilization Association of New York City, Prometheus Realty Corp., Portofino Realty Corp. and Tuscan Realty Corp. in a lawsuit against the New York City Water Board. The suit charges that the Water Board acted outside its authority when it passed an unjustified 2.1% water rate increase, and a one-time $183 bill credit for 1-3 family homeowners, but not for owners of apartment buildings, condominiums and cooperatives. Herrick partners Michael Berengarten and Kevin Fullington, and associate Jared Newman secured a temporary restraining order in Manhattan Supreme Court to block the rate actions until another court hearing.
