: To summarize, the specific decision in Irizarry was in one App Term. But the principles it's based on date back to the 1800's and only a complete idiot, or a housing court judge, could fail to recognize an unauthorized regulation, especially a statute of limitation.
Disclaimer- The word "idiot" in the above paragraph is not meant to include non-lawyers, lay advocates, or tenant advisors. It is only meant to include people who attended an accredited law school, practiced in an area of law with state regulation, and who manage to screw up even the most basic, fundamental priciples of law through the sheer force of stupidity.
2d disclaimer- The top paragraph is not meant to disparage the few Housing Court judges who take the time and effort to give fair weight to pro se argument and testimony, and who do not allow bribes or phoney legal arguments by the psuedo lawyers that infest the housing court to win against the merits. These Housing Court judges we applaud.
3d disclaimer- The 2d disclaimer only applies to a small and shrinking minority of Housing Court judges (not the actual title). We tip our hats in memory of Judge Carl O. Callendar (he's in Queens now). He was grumpy, but he was pretty fair to the pro se's. He is sorely missed in Brooklyn....
