Although I wouldn't really expect any results, you could protest to the supervising agencies (DHCR, HPD, HUD, as appropriate). If that doesn't yield any more money from the co-op, you could go to small claims court or to civil court. Real Property Law 234 might prove helpful in getting back your reasonable attorneys' fees from the co-op if you have to go to court. Check your lease, occupancy agreement, or proprietary lease.

: I live in a Mitchel-lama Co-op and some shareholders have lost 75% or all of their equity
: (the purchase of the shares so they could live in the co-op). Management, kept their
: money for one year and sent them a refund in July '99 without supporting doucuments.
: that would account for the excessive deduction. Each shareholder had restored their unit.
: Is there a case that you know of where the shareholders won their case?
: Please respond. We are having a meeting on 8/17/99 to appeal to the Board to give back their money.
