Dan Garodnick on Catharine Young’s Attempt to Dismantle Tenants’ Legal Victory

Tuesday, May 17th, 2011

New York City Council member Dan Garodnick has written an op-ed piece bashing Catharine Young’s Senate bill S4117A which would reverse the tenants’ victory in the Roberts v. Tishman Speyer Properties case:

“Far from offering clarity, this bill would invite new litigation. Because landlords could deregulate J-51 apartments upon returning their tax abatements, rent-protected tenants would lose their long-standing and unimpeachable rights. That would not go unchallenged.”

The bill was passed in the Senate Committee on Housing, Construction and Community Development earlier this month.
