Connecticut Housing Finance Authority

Persuaded the Connecticut Superior Court, Complex Litigation Docket, to strike the entire complaint against the Connecticut Housing Finance Authority (CHFA) claiming violations of state fair housing law, the federal Fair Housing Act and 42 U.S.C. § 1983 in connection with the administration by CHFA of the federal Low Income Housing Tax Credit program. The court agreed that the statutes did not create implied private rights of action, and the Connecticut Supreme Court upheld the decision. Asylum Hill Problem Solving Revitalization Association v. King, 2004 WL 113560 (Jan. 5, 2004); affirmed, 277 Conn. 238 (2006).
