News on Hofstra Housing Clinic's Rent-Increase Lawsuit
According to Newsday, Hofstra's Housing Rights Law Clinic just won a partial victory in a suit filed on behalf of tenants in rent-controlled apartments. The suit alleged that rent increases that were imposed in June, 2003, should be invalidated because the Board failed to provide a specific rationale justifying those increases.
The Appellate Division of the New York State Supreme Court has awarded the tenant group a partial victory against the Nassau County Rent Guidelines Board, ordering the Board to give a rationale for rent increases imposed in 2003-04. However, the court did not overturn the increases. To learn more, you can read the the Newsday story or check out Hofstra's clinics.
