He Didn’t Break Any Rules. New York City Is Demanding He Pay a Fine Anyway

Source: Reason

“People should be horrified to learn that Serafim Katergaris, a New York City resident, was forced to pay a fine to the city for a code violation he not only didn’t commit but had no way of knowing about. But while Katergaris has the means to fight grasping city officials and may ultimately win in court, his Kafkaesque ordeal is no isolated incident. The city’s building regulations have long been used to victimize the innocent and to fill government coffers while also lining the pockets of city officials.” (09/19/22)
