Sateesh Nori and Fazeela Siddiqui of The Legal Aid Society write: Sandy affected almost 300,000 New Yorkers, took 49 lives, and damaged over 27,000 homes, leaving 2.1 million people without power immediately after the storm. Sandy also brought New Yorkers a myriad of legal challenges that disproportionately affected the poorest and most vulnerable communities in the city.
