Elias Morales v. Related Management Company, LP D/B/A/ Army Plaza Senior Housing
United States District Court for the Southern District of New York
2015 WL 7779297 (2015)
Elias Morales (plaintiff) received housing assistance from the housing-choice voucher program (the program) of the Department of Housing and Urban Development (the department) (defendant). The program was established by the United States Housing Act (the housing act) as a joint federal-state program that allowed low-income families and veterans to apply for housing assistance. Morales received assistance as a homeless veteran. Pursuant to his voucher, Morales submitted a residential application to Armory Plaza Senior Housing (Armory) (defendant), which was a housing complex managed by Related Management Company, LP (the company) (defendant). Armory rejected Morales’s application. In response, Morales filed an action in federal district court against Armory, the company, the department, and other government officials (collectively, Armory) (defendants). Morales argued that Armory’s rejection of his application violated the Fair Housing Act, the Administrative Procedure Act, and his due-process rights. Armory moved to dismiss the complaint. The district court considered the motion.
