JDS Sued For American Copper Building and Park Slope Fair Housing Subpoenas Coming

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - The Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, June 15 – NYC luxury housing developer JDS is being sued for alleged Fair Housing Act violations on two large buildings: American Copper (760 expensive rentals at 626 1st Ave) and 202 8th Street in Park Slope, Brooklyn.  

  U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Chief Magistrate Judge Gabriel W. Gorenstein held a proceeding on June 15. Inner City Press covered it.

  Judge Gorenstin told a defense lawyer, You didn't answer my question. If you understand that you didn't, please do. Or I can repeat my question.     The question was about discovery, and whether two people affiliated with the defendants used private email addresses. 

   Judge Gorenstein told plaintiff he would facilitate a subpoena for these disputed private emails, including "what time they wake up in the morning."   

  But it was said PMG (Property Markets Group) has owed these documents for a long time. 

  Judge Gorenstein said, We're going down the subpoena route, and it could get "intrusive."

The case is Fair Housing Justice Center, Inc. v. JDS Development LLC et al., 19-cv-1171 (Torres / Gorenstein).
