HUD Legally Exempted PHA from Civil Service Regulations
Facts: Employees of the New Orleans Housing Authority claimed that HUD improperly exempted the housing authority from Louisiana civil service laws and that the Louisiana Civil Service Commission (LCSC) improperly acceded to HUD's action, which resulted in the government agencies discriminating against them. The federal district court ruled in favor of HUD, dismissing the case. The employees appealed.
Decision: The appeals court upheld the lower court's decision in favor of HUD.
