New York Law Journal

Michael Berengarten and Herrick were mentioned in the New York Law Journal as representing the Rent Stabilization Association of New York City, Prometheus Realty Corp., Portofino Realty Corp. and Tuscan Realty Corp. in their victory against the New York City Water Board. The judge found for our clients and stopped the water board from providing a one-time $183 bill credit to owners of one-, two- and three-family homes. The judge also ruled that the board's plan for raising the rates of all customers by 2.1 percent, was illegal and outside the board's authority.
