Jiggetts v. Grinker – Case Brief Summary (New York)

Jiggetts v. Grinker, (75 N.Y.2d 411, 553 N.E.2d 570, 554 N.Y.S.2d 92 [1990]), involved a clear statutory and constitutional mandate to provide assistance payments to qualifying families which were adequate to avoid homelessness.

To the extent that allowances were insufficient for recipient families to pay rent and remain in their homes, there was a clear violation by an executive agency of a legislative directive, redressable in the courts, which could compel compliance (id. at 415).

Thus, there was a justiciable controversy.
