Tim Brophy RE-revisited


Just when we thought something having to do with Tim Brophy’s unhappy affairs would be concluded in a just and honorable way, the story continues to defy closure. (Or should we say Tim Brophy continues to defy closure?)
For those of you who are unfamiliar with the saga, here is some history.
Let’s go back to March of 2006 when Jessica Wineberg initiated the lawsuit against landlord Brophy after the city, due to outstanding building code violations, ousted her from the apartment she’d rented from him only days earlier. Brophy didn’t return her security deposit within the time allotted. So she sued him.
In January of 2007 the case was found to be appropriate for a Class action and opened to anyone who’d rented from Brophy between March 30, 2000 and May 15, 2007, provided there were uncorrected housing and building code violations that Brophy failed to disclose, or they were not returned their security deposits or given an explanation as to why within the required 21 days. There are presently over 100 plaintiffs who fit these standards.
