In Reply to: Re: Succession Rights?.......HERE IS THE CASE!!!!!!!!!! posted by richard on October 07, 2000 at 15:35:19:
Thanks, Richard, for providing that case. So many provisions of the 1997 rent law apply to pending cases, which has been very harmful to tenants, especially in overcharge cases, with the four-year period for challenging an overcharge.
It's fortunate for the tenant that Judge Billings chose to rule on the merits of the issues of succession and the rent to be charged to the successor. Judge Billings could have dismissed the case, without prejudice, because there was no valid agent to bring the case.
