  1. the rent stabilization ruling is interesting. the lawsuits are very similar to the one filed by the independence plaza tenants association against stellar management. in that case it was a j-51 tax abatement which the landlord was hiding from the tenants. the tenants association at first won the case and all the ipn apartments were to be rent stabilized but on appeal the decision was reversed and stellar management was allowed to return the abatement and keep the buildings market rate.
