Many prosecutors' offices devote special attention to pursuing evictions under the Bawdy House law. Their involvement can include sending demand letters forcing landlords to bring eviction proceedings; providing evidence to landlords and coordinating access to police witnesses; attempts to exercise veto power over negotiations; appearing at oral argument, hearings, and trial as co-counsel to the landlords; and attempting to intervene as necessary parties.

This folder contains resources to challenge an ADA or prosecutor's attempts to overstep their significant, but limited, authority under the RPAPL.
