New York City Landlord Agrees to Pay $8M to Settle Tenant Harassment Case


“Earlier this year, we put Mr. Croman in jail for an elaborate scheme that was intended to push out rent-regulated tenants. And today, we’re ensuring tenants get the restitution and protections they deserve…,” added Schneiderman.

Furthermore, Schneiderman emphasized that his office has “zero tolerance” for landlords who try to boost their profit by disregarding the welfare of their tenants.

Moreover, he reiterated that his office will continue to ensure that all landlords play by the rules and will aggressively pursue anyone who doesn’t.

The attorney general office said Anthony Falconite, the other defendant in the case will not have interaction with any Croman tenants.  The landlord referred to Falconite as his “secret weapon” in intimidating rent-regulated tenants.
