FAIR HOUSING CENTER FILES CONTEMPT MOTION AGAINST HOUSING AUTHORITY
The Greater New Orleans Fair Housing Action Center (GNOFHAC) filed a Motion to Enforce a Consent Decree and for Contempt Sanctions today in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New Orleans against the Housing Authority of New Orleans (HANO), now under the receivership of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The motion is in response to HANO’s failure to provide updated contact information for former St. Thomas residents in violation of the June 2007 Consent Decree entered in the case Corner, et al., v. The Housing Authority of New Orleans, et al., Civil Action No. 06-10751.
