I have a coop in Brooklyn NY but moved out about a year ago. I left 2 friends in the apartment that has never bothered anyone. I recently received a letter stating that I am in violation of sublet rules and have x amount days to cure or risk losing my apartment. The building does not allow subletting which imo is a real burden for some people. Do I have ny legal grounds? Do I have to move back in?

You were given a copy of the co-op bylaws when you bought the apartment. You'll be fighting a losing battle; if the bylaws say 'no subletting' then those are the rules you agreed to.
