Amending HP Petition with New Conditions?

Postby Sky » Fri Mar 19, 2010 10:41 am

I’m pro-se and filed an HP case a few weeks ago with a court ordered inspection.
I've already had one court appearance and was served a cross-motion to dismiss by the LL, which was followed up by my serving opposition papers.
This week, I had a major problem in my apartment that is going to entail construction work to correct it. I called 311 to lodge a complaint to HPD to get the wheels rolling.
I want to include these new issues in my current HP case, how do I do that? Can I do a sort of amendment to the petition?
My return court date in a week and a half.
Thanks.

Any lawyers out there know the answer?
My next court date is in few days, do I need to file an order to show cause or some other action to include the new violations? My understanding is that an HP case will not deal with violations or conditions that occur after the initial date the petition is filed.
