Supreme Court Doesn't Have To Time Rule On Petty Rent Control Matters

04.23.12 Bucky Turco

Good news rent controlled tenants, the Supreme Court isn’t going to fuck with your living situation. Earlier today, the court refused to hear a case that could’ve had huge ramifications for those rare species of people lucky enough to be occupying rent stabilized apartments in NYC. It all stemmed from a dispute filed by James and Jeanne Harmon, owners and residents of a five-story brownstone on the Upper West Side who argued that the people they rent the other floors to are getting too good of a deal and therefore were in violation of all sorts of laws. Luckily, the conservative justices weren’t given an opportunity to botch this case up. (Photo: Hobo Matt/flickr)
