  • Complaining about a rent overcharge in New York City -
    An article written by Kenneth B. Hawco which explains the three options available to rent stabilized tenants in New York City who want to complain that the rent they pay is more than the law allows under the rent regulated systems in New York City and suggests that having such complaints decided by a judge is almost always a better option for tenants instead of filing a rent overcharge complaint with the New York State Division of Housing and Community Renewal (DHCR), the state agency that processes and decides such complaints, which, it is suggested, is the least favorable option for tenants.


  • The Federal False Claims Act -
    An article written by Kenneth B. Hawco which provides both an overview of the Federal False Claims Act and examples of the substantial sums of money recovered by people who successfully brought such lawsuits.
