Tenants displaced by Elmhurst blaze seek court-appointed administrator
"An Elmhurst apartment building was nearly destroyed by a five-alarm blaze on April 11 and now, nearly one-third of the residents have signed on to a lawsuit filed by the Legal Aid Society to protect them from landlord fraud.
The management company that owns The Martinique has been slow in making necessary repairs to most of the 111 apartments at 56-11 94th St., and the lawsuit, called a 7A proceeding, seeks an order of the court to appoint an administrator to oversee the repair process in a transparent and accountable way."
