Brahvan Ranga, the political director of For the Many, raised alarms about how a conservative Chief Judge would rule on rent reform laws.
A number of municipalities in the state have passed good cause eviction laws, which provides tenants rigorous eviction protections and limits rent increases. Since then Albany’s law was struck down in state Supreme Court. The city is in the process of appealing that decision, but other cities are expected to face a similar legal battle.
“The housing security of thousands of tenants now hangs in the balance. Eventually these challenges will almost certainly be heard right here at the Court of Appeals,” said Ranga.
