Justice Alice Schlesinger of State Supreme Court told Gluck and his fellow landlords in that case that they could not withdraw from the case as they sought and had a week to move for "summary judgment" in the case. (Summary judgment is a determination based solely on whether the law is correct or not - because no one is disputing any facts.)
The landlords submitted their motion for summary judgment by the judge's deadline, and three of the tenant associations - Central Park Gardens, Prospect Towers, and Westview (Manhattan) have cross-moved for summary judgment. Our lawyer, David Ratner of Hartman, Ule, Rose & Ratner, did an outstanding job.
