Living conditions improve for tenant in a public housing property

Clients Client A

In December 2008 and January 2009, on behalf of the Washington Legal Clinic for the Homeless, Jones Day's Tashena Middleton Moore and Julie Broas negotiated with the District of Columbia Housing Authority ("DCHA") to abate and repair water, mold and other damage that had made the client's apartment, a public housing property owned and managed by DCHA, unlivable. The client had been seeking such repairs for many months, but was unable to move out of the apartment for fear of losing his public housing eligibility.
