Bowery no-frills hotel sues tenant to make him stop suing

The Whitehouse Hotel at 340 Bowery in New York, a budget hotel that rents out small rooms for $30 a night, has had trouble with one of their long-time tenants. In 2009 alone Roland Davis filed twenty-three lawsuits against his landlords, and all in all the hotel has spent over $200,000 defending themselves against this lone tenant. Now they are suing in return, asking the courts to require Davis to seek approval and receive it before he can file any more suits against them. They claim that he files suit strictly out of "spite, ill will and in bad faith." Davis has also been arrested for assaulting one of the hotel's former owners.

Davis spoke with the New York Post about the issue and claims that the city has ignored problems with the hotel and that his landlords are simply trying to find a way to evict him.
