Charlottesville Housing Suit Settlement Proposed

Posted: Updated:

A settlement has been reached in a lawsuit between Charlottesville's Redevelopment and Housing Authority and people living in public housing.

The class action suit was originally filed last summer and alleged the housing authority over-charged people on utilities for several years.

In a release from the Legal Aid Justice Center, it says the settlement could be worth up to $500,000.

CRHA would pay back affected tenants according to the agreement.

The settlement still needs to be approved by a federal judge. A hearing for that has been scheduled for November 4.
