New RSC: case starts 12/10

Posted by EZT on December 09, 2001 at 19:50:11:


Tenants are needed for the first day in court in the lawsuit challenging
Governor Pataki's recent changes to the Rent Stabilization Code. The judge
must see that this issue is important to tenants. Although the suit is
being launched in Brooklyn, if we prevail, the anti-tenant changes could be
stopped statewide. Come to court!

Monday, Dec. 10, 2001
Brooklyn Criminal Court Building*
120 Schermerhorn St.(near Adams)

9:30 - 10:30 a.m., in front of court house
10:30 a.m. - 1 p.m., Room 308

A/C/G to Hoyt/Schermerhorn, 2/4/5 to Nevins St.,
or 2/4/5/N/R to Court St./Borough Hall

*NOTE: Although this is a State Supreme Court case, we have been assigned a
room in the Criminal Court Building. However, as many people have pointed
out, it's a very appropriate building in which to be suing Pataki's DHCR!

The Pataki Code Changes:

* Makes it easier for landlords to evict and overcharge rent-stabilized
* Places undue constraints on the relationship between prime tenants and
particularly punishing the poor and elderly.
* Makes it easier for landlords to increase rents for MCIs, appliances and
and harder for tenants to fight these unfair increases.
