In Roberts v. Tishman Speyer Props, L.P., 13 N.Y.3d 270, the Court of Appeals established that a landlord receiving J-51 benefits could not avail itself of the benefits of luxury deregulation.

That issue has spawned conflicting decision in the First Department, and seems destined to reach the Court of Appeals.
