Just curious if anyone out there has had any experience taking on the DHCR in an Article 78 proceeding in State Supreme Court - especially in regards to challenging the four year landlord 'statute of limitations' enacted in 1997. This is a situation where the (rent stabilized) tenant is using the argument that the landlord never provided a legal lease (having first set up an illusory sublease and overcharging the tenant). Therefore, the tenant maintains that the landlord and DHCR should be required to establish a rent based on the last legal registered listing for the apartment - which requires going back four and a half years.
