471 F. Supp. 2d. 87 (D.D.C. 2007), aff'd in part, rev'd in part and remanded, 548 F.3d 1063 (D.C.Cir. 2008). Successful challenge to owner's refusal to accept tenants' enhanced vouchers after Section 8 opt-out. After the trial court awarded judgment based on federal statutory claims, the D.C. Circuit upheld that judgment, ruling that the tenants have a federal statutory right to remain until their tenancies are validly terminated under local law, but also recognized the tenants’ valid claim for source of income discrimination under local law.
