I am pleased and quite honored to now be representing, along with attorneys Parisa Ijadi-Maghsoodi and Bryan Pease, the plaintiffs in an action against the San Diego Housing Commission seeking to address significant long-standing housing segregation in San Diego. The action alleges the Commission administers Federal Section 8 program funds in a manner which perpetuates racial segregation and the concentration of poverty in San Diego in violation of state and federal law. The action seeks to enjoin the Commission from continuing to administer its Section 8 program in this discriminatory fashion. A successful result in this case will have a significant positive impact in San Diego and for thousands of its residents. That is why I joined the case and why my fine co-counsels and I will work hard to try to deliver that successful result.
