Discontinuing Section 8 Voucher Too Harsh a Penalty
Facts: A homeless family was declared eligible for a Section 8 housing voucher. The New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) later denied the family continuation of the voucher because they didn't provide access for a Housing Quality Standards inspection. The residents appealed HPD's decision, claiming that it was arbitrary and unreasonable.
Decision: The court ruled for the residents.
