Landlords See State as Overreaching on Regs

Kevin Fullington was quoted in Crain's New York Business about Herrick's representation of the Rent Stabilization Association and the Community Housing Improvement Program in a lawsuit challenging the legitimacy of the state's Tenant Protection Unit and a set of new rent regulation amendments adopted by the state housing agency. A state Supreme Court recently denied the state's motion to dismiss and granted the landlords' motion to take emergency discovery. "We view this as the housing world's version of the soda ban case," Kevin said. "Our goal is to ensure that state agencies comply with the law. To the extent that a number of new rules violate laws, we want them repealed and off the books."
