Court Update, Problems Persist...

We have finished presenting our case for the tenant petition (lawsuit) we filed against the management company and landlord in the DC Office of Administrative Hearings (OAH).

The Management company will present their case in the OAH at 941 North Capitol Street, January 9-10, 2008.

Ten tenants have testified about the unsafe and unsanitary conditions they are forced to live with, including:

-Living with mice and roaches.
-Bedbug infestations in their apartments. One tenant testified about finding a bedbug nest under his bed.
-Walking up 7 flights of stairs on crutches because the elevator was broken for 31 days.
-Children being bitten by bedbugs.
-Having no heat or A/C.
-Mold infestations along living room and bedroom walls.
-Stoves leaking gas.

We hope the management finally ushers in some much needed repairs in the new year.

For now, we request, and we wait...
