HSRR's Barbara Hadsell And Co-Counsel Settle Slumlord Case in Westlake Region of Los Angeles For $4.5 Million

Fifteen families received more than $4.5 million to settle a three-year-old habitability suit against the current and former landlords of an apartment building who allowed the property to fall into egregious disrepair. The $4.5 Million settlement reached was reached during mediation, and is one of the highest amounts paid to individual plaintiffs in a habitability suit in Los Angeles County history. Despite repeated complaints from the tenants and a multitude of citations by several government entities, the defendants failed to improve the conditions in the building, forcing tenants to live in horrible conditions. The lawsuit was first filed in July 2006, and is subject to a confidentiality clause that prohibits the firms from publicizing details including plaintiff and defendants names.
