NEWBURGH — A judge has struck down Newburgh's local law prohibiting evictions under certain circumstances.A group of landlords filed suit against Newburgh, its city court, and the mayor for passing the law, known as 'good-cause eviction,' in February. The suit was filed within months after the city became the second in the state to pass such a measure. Albany was the first municipality in New York to pass such legislation, in July 2021. Albany's law was also struck down over the summer after a group of landlords sued, though it was later reinstated while the city's appeal plays out.
