Attorney General James Responds To Lawsuit Against New York Rent Stabilization Laws 

NEW YORK – Attorney General Letitia James today released the following statement in response to a lawsuit filed in the Eastern District of New York challenging the constitutionality of New York’s rent regulations:  

“The Tenant Protection Act is a critical step in reforming the state’s broken rent regulation system—a system that bad-acting landlords have manipulated and controlled for far too long. My office is committed to defending this law, and ensuring that New Yorkers across the state have access to safe, affordable homes they need and deserve.”
