Challenging Disability Discrimination in NYCHA

On July 15, 2015, Leah Goodridge, Esq., Staff Attorney of the Safety Net Project, filed an appeal at the Appellate Division—First Department of New York to challenge NYCHA’s refusal to set aside its occupancy rules to accommodate Ms. A, a disabled tenant. NYCHA’s failure to accommodate Ms. A resulted in her son’s inability to inherit her apartment. Staff Attorney Leah Goodridge will argue this case before the Appellate Division in October 2015.
