NYCHA tenants win injunction, with New York Supreme Court ordering lead inspections

NEW YORK (WABC) -- NYCHA tenants who say they've lived for years with toxic lead in their homes had their day in court Tuesday.

Tenants went before a New York Supreme Court justice.

Their lawsuit asked the court to force NYCHA to conduct lead inspections within 90 days. The judge agreed and granted a preliminary injunction.

This comes after the Department of Investigation found the city failed to conduct annual inspections for more than three years.
