Section 8 Resident Can't Sue HUD for Unit Conditions
Facts: A resident sued the City of New York and HUD, claiming that the condition of her unit and building deteriorated despite her repeated complaints. She claimed that the owner didn't comply with the Section 8 inspection requirements. Specifically, the resident described having to break a window to get into her unit because her doorknob was broken. She also claimed there was a conspiracy between other residents and site management regarding site conditions.
HUD asked the court to dismiss the case without a trial.
