2. Memo in support of plaintiffs’ motions for temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction
3. Settlement Agreement
4. Expert’s Report
The PHA and HUD submitted to a consent decree that provided substantial protections to the displaced tenants in exchange for the tenants’ agreement to the partial demolition. The consent decree committed the parties to a plan for one-for-one replacement housing with hard units and an extensive relocation plan that included pre-move, post-move, and second-move counseling, and the payment of initial move and second move expenses. In addition to agreeing to the settlement, HUD posted a notice on its website stating that, in the case of a partial demolition, a PHA must demonstrate both that the units identified for demolition are obsolete with no feasible plan for returning them to useful life and the that the demolition will help ensure the viability of the remaining portion of the development.
