A North Carolina city is supporting a woman's fight against the managers of a federally subsidized housing complex to avoid eviction.
The News & Record of Greensboro reported Saturday the case is the first time the city has used the Fair Housing Ordinance in support of a tenant fighting an eviction order.
LaTonya Stimpson is appealing an eviction order by the management of the J.T. Hairston Memorial Apartments that is owned by a nonprofit church board.
Stimpson is a mother of four and says she is being evicted in retaliation for her efforts to have the property managers replaced.
Apartment official Mary Mims has told the News & Record that management complied with all federal housing rules in evicting tenants.
