U.S. District Judge Eric Komitee of the Eastern District of New York rejected most of the claims brought by landlords against New York City and New York state in a ruling Wednesday affirming the constitutionality of rent stabilization laws.

Komitee issued a single opinion addressing two cases, one filed against the city and another against the state. He dismissed the suit against the city altogether and dismissed some plaintiffs’ claims against the state, finding that case law supports a “broad conception of government power to regulate rents, including in ways that may diminish—even significantly—the value of landlords’ property.”
