Actually, it was in the first paragraph of the article, Rule Limits Overcharging of Roommates, where The Times said that the tenant could be evicted:
"In a case threatening upheaval for many rent-stabilized tenants in New York City, a judge has ruled that landlords may evict those who charge roommates more than a fair share of the rent.
The ruling involved a disabled 70-year-old retiree who took in a roommate at her Park Avenue apartment in March, charging him $2,200 when her monthly rent was $1,847.77. The landlord moved to evict them both, citing a new state regulation on roommate overcharges."
The proposed regulations said: "The charging of a rental to such occupant that exceeds that amount shall be deemed to constitute profiteering in violation of § 2520.3 of this Title."
The final regulations say: "The charging of a rental amount to an occupant that exceeds that occupant's proportionate share shall be deemed to constitute a violation of this Code."
