STAND WITH DIGNITY V. HOUSING AUTHORITY OF NEW ORLEANS

STAND and its members hereby file this petition for a writ of mandamus demanding the release of public documents. The Housing Authority of New Orleans’ (“HANO”) unlawful failure to provide the records is one in the latest in a series of arbitraty and unreasonable actions that harm the most vulnerable residents of this community– low-income renterrs, low-wage workers, struggling families as a means of supporting the right to return.

This petition for a writ of mandamus and other relief arises from a request for public records submitted to HANO on July 15, 2009, by STAND with Dignity, a grassroots membership organization that monitors and seeks to improve HANO’s administration of the Housing Choice Voucher Program (“HCVP”), also known as Section-8, as an integrated component of a comprehensive plan for affordable housing in New Orleans.
