New York's highest court ruled Thursday that a partner in a long-term homosexual relationship can take over the couple's rent-controlled apartment when the lover who signed the lease dies. In a 4-2 ruling, the Court of Appeals ordered a lower court to reconsider its decision permitting the eviction of a New York City man from a rent-controlled apartment he shared for a decade with his lover, who died.

More than 8,000 people rallied at the state Capitol in Albany, protesting threatened changes in rent control laws in New York City. The laws limit how much landlords can charge for about 1.2 million apartments. The laws affect 2.7 million tenants, many of whom worry that decontrol will lead to higher rents. Protesters also opposed a plan to keep the laws intact for current residents but permit market-rate rents once a tenant moves or dies.

For more than a quarter of a century, Herman Leffler has sold cotton and nylon blend fabrics a stone's throw from Macy's huge department store on Herald Square in Manhattan, shipping his wares from tiny Show Boat Fabrics to textile manufacturers throughout the nation. Then, the store's landlord arrived with a bombshell. To renew his lease, Leffler would have to pay four times the old rent. Now, Leffler, 70, is not sure what he's going to do when his lease expires next year.
