Class Certified in KPT Federal Housing Case

On October 29, 2009, the Honorable Judge Michael Seabright of the United States District Court for the District of Hawaii certified LEJ as class counsel in the case of McMillan v. State of Hawaii.

The Court certified a class of "all present and future residents of KPT and Kuhio Homes who are eligible for public housing, who have mobility impairments or other disabling medical conditions that constitute “disabilities” or “handicaps” under federal disability nondiscrimination laws, and who are being denied access to the facilities, programs, services, and/or activities of the Defendants, and or/discriminated against, because of the architectural barriers and/or hazardous conditions described in the Complaint."

This enables this important case to move forward and ensure relief for all those residents at KPT who have been injured by the State's problematic policies.
