Court of Appeals Strikes Down Part of Rent Control Law on Due Process Grounds

On April 2, 2020, the Court of Appeals issued a decision in Matter of Regina Metro. Co., LLC v. New York State Div. of Hous. & Community Renewal, 2020 NY Slip Op. 02127, striking down part of the Housing Stability and Tenant Protection Act of 2019 on Due Process Clause grounds.

Usually, at this point, we quote the key portions of the decision. In this case, the whole decision, including Judge Wilson's dissent, is interesting reading and worth the time to read.
