Rochester City Court has a new housing section. Now, tenants can bring small claims actions against landlords to be heard by a judge.
We talk about how the system will work, and we hear from a local tenant and a local landlord who share their perspectives and concerns. In studio:
- Mark Muoio, program director of the housing unit at the Legal Aid Society of Rochester
- Ryan Acuff, member of the City Wide Tenant Union of Rochester
- Pam Owens Dade, member of the City Wide Tenant Union of Rochester, and president of the Manhattan Savannah Tenant Association
- Matthew Drouin, managing partner of OakGrove Development
