Kucker Marino Winiarsky & Bittens Represents Brooklyn Landlord in Class-Action Overcharge Claim

Nativ Winiarsky, a partner at Kucker Marino Winiarsky & Bittens, LLP, is set to argue against certification of a class of tenants seeking treble damages for various overcharges claims. Tenants are claiming that landlord failed to properly register the building as required under the 421-a tax break program, and that the preferential rents purposely inflated the legal rent. Mr. Winiarsky adamantly believes that this class action will fail because the landlord charged most tenants the legal rent allowed.
