Blacklisting the Blacklist

New, 14 comments

The New York courts will stop selling tenant information to companies that in turn give that information to landlords, allowing them to blacklist particular tenants. The information landlords receive only tells them if someone with a particular name (who might not actually be their tenant) was involved in a housing court action, regardless of whether the tenant took the landlord to court or what the circumstances were. Case information will still be available through the court, but landlords would have to go looking for it. [Runnin' Scared]
