Where do I bring a harassment case against my landlord? An Episode of the Tenant Law Podcast
Mar 19, 2023
Welcome to the Tenant Law Podcast, where we talk about new, interesting, and/or important legal cases affecting New York City tenants. This weekly pod will be about 10 minutes long. First, we give you some background, so you have the context to understand the case we are discussing. Then we talk about the case itself. And finally, we explain why the case is important, and give you our Tenant Takeaway!
Listen on Apple, Spotify, or Google.
Episode 1 examines a recent New York City Civil Court case where a landlord attempted to have tenant’s harassment case dismissed because tenant previously brought a case for harassment against landlord in DHCR and lost. We discuss when a court will dismiss a case because it is too much like an earlier case between the parties. We also discuss what factors go in to a Rent Stabilized tenant’s decision about where to bring a harassment case against landlord, at DHCR or in Housing Court.
