The Great Rent Wars

This chapter focuses on the challenges to the September laws in federal court. It describes the rulings in cases such as Marcus Brown Holding Co. v. Pollak et al., Willson v. McDonnell, Hirsh v. Block, and Brown v. Feldman. It concludes that Block v. Hirsh shaped the subsequent history of rent control not only in Washington, D.C., but also in the rest of the country. In the case of New York, the decision meant that the emergency rent laws would stand until November 1, 1922, unless they were modified or repealed by the state legislature.
