I've taken my landlord to court over warranty of habitability issues. When I went to court, the lawyer tried to approach me to settle with a stipulation. I said no and requested an inspection from the judge, who granted it, saying I was looking for a rent abatement. Now the attorney has sent me a Notice to Produce. Asking for all leases, correspondance, documents, etc. since I've been living here, over 9 years. It is a free market apartment. I'm wondering what the rules are for discovery in a housing court issue. I didn't think they could do this, although I have most of the items requested. It seems the attorney is trying to intimidate me. Any help or advice in this area would be extremely appreciated.
