MFJ Supports Crown Heights Tenants on Rent Strike

Mobilization for Justice is representing a group of Crown Heights tenants who are waging a rent strike after three winters with no heat. As this report from News 12 Brooklyn shows, the landlord has engaged in serious harassment in an effort to force out rent-stabilized tenants. MFJ Attorney Brian Sullivan said, “They’ve illegally removed five of the eight units from rent stabilization and they’re charging the tenants way more than they legally should be able to.”  MFJ has taken the landlord to court to return the five units to rent stabilized status and to restore heat and repair conditions in the other three rent-stabilized units.
