Senator Krueger Responds to the Nigel Warren Decision
New York State Senator, Liz Krueger, has issued a statement in response to the recent Nigel Warren decision. Senator Krueger co-sponsored Chapter 225 of 2010 (also known as the illegal hotels legislation), the law at issue in the Nigel Warren case. She begins her statement declaring that Chapter 225 of 2010 was not intended to target individuals such as Nigel Warren but “large, ongoing hotel operations.”
Senator Krueger ends her statement announcing that she is “open to discussing good faith efforts to improve the law.” Unfortunately, she adds: “the only proposals that have been put forward so far would gut the law, making it practically unenforceable and leaving New Yorkers without any recourse against illegal hotel operations compromising the safety and security of their homes”.
