Resident Didn't Properly Appeal PHA's Termination Decision
Facts: A Section 8 resident sued the local PHA and its employees for allegedly violating her constitutional rights. From March 2008 until January 2013, she entered into a lease agreement for an apartment. The PHA, through a housing inspector, conducted an annual inspection of the apartment in January 2013. The inspector noted that the resident wasn’t occupying the unit and that an unidentified man was living there. Based on the inspector’s observations, the PHA terminated the resident’s participation in the Section 8 program.
