Nozzi v. Housing Authority of the City of Los Angeles, et al.,
  • Case No. 2:07-cv-00380-PA-FFM
  • Pending in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California
  •  Claims Administrator: JND Class Action Administration

This class action lawsuit revovles around claims that the Housing Authority of the City of Los Angeles reduced the amount of voucher payment standards without giving adequate advanced notice to Section 8 tenants which is in violation of federal and state law (according to the class members).  Those who were a HACLA Section 8 tenant between June 1, 2005 and Sept. 30, 2006 will want to file a claim in this class action lawsuit in hopes of getting a pay day.  The U.S. District Court for the Central District of California has approved a settlement amount ranging between $9 million to $9.4 million dollars payable by check.  Class members do not have to hire a lawyer as the court has appointed Barrett S. Litt, Anne Richardson, and Stephanie Carroll.  The class members attorney’s will ask for 30% of the total available settlement fund.
