Implications of "Case Discontinued"?

Posted by Lawrence on September 11, 1997 at 18:29:30:

My landlord "discontinued" his housing court case case against me on the advice of the
court attorney, who told him his case would be dismissed because it is an illegal multiple dwelling.
Now, it seems that the inspection we were supposedto get, and our counter
claim are also "discontinued". So, we wound up without any resolution,
without any rent abatement, or any court pressure for the LL to make

Can we reassert our claims?

If LL brings his action in another court, eg small claims or an ejectment in supreme
court, do we lose the protections of housing court, such as the right to inspection,
to counterclaim, and the shield of an "illegal multiple dwelling"?

Thank you for any insight or thoughts on this matter...
