More likely the "replacements" will include TRUMP.

I don't think Trump can appoint himself to the SCOTUS, but who knows.

NO MORE RENT STABILIZED APARTMENTS WHATSOEVER ANYWHERE IN THE US

NO MORE RENT CONTROLLED APARTMENTS WHATSOEVER ANYWHERE IN THE US


Cuomo actually did landlords a huge favor

There gave been cases that got to the SCOTUS that involved laws similar to NY''s rent regulations, and those laws were upheld.

If and or when this case ever reaches SCOTUS off the bat there would be problems.

First two of the justices are native New Yorkers from Manhattan no less. One or both may have real estate ties (family, investments) or other reasons to recluse themselves. That would take nine justices down to six or seven.

IIRC four justices must vote "yes" to take a case on SCOTUS. You might get the conservative wing to go along, but it would that entire block.

Finally there are other rent regulation cases (Portland and Washington IIRC) that may be heading into federal courts. Those decisions if arrive before NY case (if it ever makes it to trial), may set the tone.

Being as all this may anyone who thinks the SCOTUS is going to put hundreds of poor, elderly, upper middle aged and others who cannot afford market rate housing out onto the streets had better think again.

Even if SCOTUS struck down NYS's current rent control laws, Albany would certainly pass another, one that adheres to whatever rulings found previous law defective.
They will do so for same reasons, no one even GOP in this state wants to see people put out on the streets.

What likely would happen under such an scenario is a return to to luxury decontrol model. That and certain units would be decontrolled upon vacancy.

Again you have to remember a good majority of those in rent regulated housing cannot even afford preferential rents. Those paying legal RS rents often are putting > one-third or even nearly half their monthly take home income towards rent. There just isn't anywhere else for those people to go and the optics of a huge sudden homeless crisis would look bad for Cuomo (or whoever is governor).
