Usually these abstracts from the New York Law Journal are–when comprehensible to a layman like me–spare and dry. But this decision from a New York appellate court on the eviction of a public housing tenant and his disabled girlfriend is anything but:
Panel Finds Eviction Shocking to Fairness
Ben Bedell, New York Law Journal
The eviction of an elderly public housing tenant and his disabled girlfriend of 30 years—based on a 1998 infraction by the woman’s teenage son—”shocks our sense of fairness,” a panel of the Appellate Division, First Department, said Tuesday.
I can only hope that these poor tenants’ eviction was postponed until the case made its way through the courts.
