Mobile home residents file federal lawsuit alleging Richmond is violating Latinos' civil rights

August 18, 2015
“Everybody should have safe housing,” said Phil Storey with Legal Aid.
     Dozens of mobile home park residents sued the city of Richmond on Tuesday over an “illegal and racially discriminatory” policy that they say targets Latinos.
     The 71-page complaint, filed in U.S. District Court in Richmond, asks for unspecified damages and an end to aggressive code enforcement efforts in the city’s nine mobile home parks. Residents say those efforts are intrusive and intimidating.
