  1. These and other defamatory statements were made to DHCR, the Queens Civil Court, and Queens Supreme Court in written filings and oral arguments. The written filings were left in front of my apartment in a public hallway as well. By increasing the likelihood that I will be subjected to illegal blacklisting, I clearly have incurred damages.
  2. In New York,how does someone prove that his landlord, its representatives, and his landlord's attorney committed defamation against him both in the form of libel and slander, then arrive at the amount in both punitive and compensatory damages to sue for in Supreme Court?Defamatory statements that were made include, but are not limited to, a) I told someone I have a gun and would use it to shoot someone; I have engaged in extortionate practices; c) I am a predator; d) I tampered with an electrical outlet; e) I filed false complaints against my landlord and defamed it; f) I have harassed my landlord and neighbors; g) I intended to live rent-free upon moving into my apartment. My landlord is ****** Company, LLC. Its attorney is M**** F*******. I'm going after their licenses.
  3. Can someone please refer me to the section (such as 235- of New York State's laws that specifically relate to filing private nuisance lawsuits against noisy neighbors on the basis of excessive noise, among other things?
  4. Given that intercepting this and reading through this constitutes a private nuisance act for which she can be held liable in New York Supreme Court, I wish to file such an action against her there and have the fingerprints on the bill checked and compared against hers', which I'll have subpoenaed.
  5. Hi, I would appreciate it if someone in the New York City area can provide me with a referral to firms that offer private fingerprint detection and analysis services in this area that can be used to lift and isolate fingerprints on a rental bill that likely includes the fingerprint of a neighbor that violated the following federal law when she opened and read a rental bill that was issued to me: Source: http://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/18/1702 18 USC ยง 1702 - Obstruction of correspondence Whoever takes any letter, postal card, or package out of any post office or any authorized depository for mail matter, or from any letter or mail carrier, or which has been in any post office or authorized depository, or in the custody of any letter or mail carrier, before it has been delivered to the person to whom it was directed, with design to obstruct the correspondence, or to pry into the business or secrets of another, or opens, secretes, embezzles, or destroys the same, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than five years, or both.
  6. The bill had my name, an amount due for rent, and account number assigned to my account by my landlord. A reasonable expectation of privacy by a tenant is partially how New York's implied warranty of habitability is defined and landlords are required to abide by. The federal Fair Credit Reporting Act covers unauthorized disclosures of financial information pertaining to consumers to third-parties. This applies to my rent bill and how the information it contains wasn't sufficiently protected from being intercepted by a neighbor. The misrepresentations that the landlord made include claims about my apartment being free of defective and unsafe conditions at the time I moved into it and having made repairs that actually hadn't been made. This fact was confirmed by a pair of violations reports issued by HPD.
  7. This was a neighbor of mine who lives next to me and told police officers in front of my front door that she looked at the rent bill I received from my landlord. When the police came, they came in response to a legitimate noise complaint that I submitted against a different neighbor that she seems to be friends with and was irritated that I had submitted a complaint against her friend. The neighbor that looked at my rent bill approached the police officers when they arrived at my building and apparently led them to my front door. Although I never talked with anyone that night, there are surveillance cameras in my building that certainly show the arrival and departure of the police officers and my other neighbors almost certainly heard her tell the police officers that she had examined my rent bill. It would seem quite logical that she and my landlord violated my privacy rights that may be enforced by consumer protection laws. I have since sent a copy of the audio recording that has her telling the officers that she examined my rent bill to New York's Department of State's Division of Licensing Services to submit a complaint in order to request that the real estate licenses held by the owner of my apartment building and its property management agency be revoked on the basis of negligent misrepresentation (fraud), refusal to properly maintain my apartment, and negligently failing to adequately protect my consumer data from being accessed by third-parties, such as my neighbor.
  8. Can someone refer me to the New York State and/or federal statutes that would describe which violations of law someone in New York State committed by examining an unstamped and unsealed rent bill that my landlord left beneath the door to my apartment with part of the envelope containing it in my apartment and the other part in a shared hallway? Additionally, if the person who violated my privacy rights in this way subsequently communicated information she illegally obtained by examining this bill to other people directly and indirectly (as a result of having a conversation overheard), which additional New York State and federal laws pertaining to privacy rights may apply that she can be prosecuted for. Lastly, can the landlord that failed to properly safeguard my privacy rights by leaving such an unsealed envelope containing confidential billing information exposed for others to access be held similarly liable? Thanks.
  9. Also, what would be the maximum amount in damages I could reasonably request if there were no financial damage incurred and the damage was limited to just my reputation?
  10. Hi, Can anyone advise about whether it's possible to file a defamation lawsuit against the**** Post on the basis of defamation in a district court in NJ, such as the one in Newark, and as a former resident of NJ, since the incident that the lawsuit concerns took place while I was a resident of NJ? In addition, in such a lawsuit, what are the chances that NJ's defamation laws would apply instead of NY's, despite the fact that the **** Post is based in NYC? Since the Post sells newspapers in NJ and also published defamatory content on its web site, it would seem that NJ's defamation laws could apply. Thanks.
  11. How aggressively does the IRS get involved in investigating reports about firms that misclassify workers as 1099 consultants that are managed as W-2 employees and illegally denied overtime earnings, particularly since seems to represent a case of tax fraud by these firms?
  12. Any idea what the burden of proof and maximum damages are in New Jersey for when a toilet seat dispenser attached to the wall of a bathroom in a firm's offices suddenly opens up and hits someone in the head that is working at that office? A photo exists that shows that relevant dispenser being in the opened state and has the date and time for when the photo was taken. In this case, though OSHA and a manager was contacted about this, no doctor was seen about this nor any other type of reports was filed about it.
  13. Internet searches often include the specific laws that apply to the situation at hand. New York's laws clearly allow a tenant to deduct rent in these types of cases.
  14. The voicemail was from the real estate agent to the individual whose privacy rights he violated.
  15. If the editor with the news organization refused to issue a retraction after she was contacted about the false reporting, then it suggests willful neglect if not malice altogether. By reporting that an individual has been unemployed for a longer period than he or she actually has been out of work, it subjects the individual to the strong possibility that a job interviewer will assume that the individual's skills have deteriorated to a greater degree than they actually have. Therefore, this represents damage that can be easily presumed to affect the individual's reputation.
