On August 6, 2018, Relman, Dane & Colfax filed suit in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas, challenging the cancellation by the Housing Authority of the City of Dallas (DHA) of a Project-Based Voucher (PBV) rent subsidy program that would have permitted people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DDs) to live in integrated homes in the community. The lawsuit--filed on behalf of Community for Permanent Supported Housing, a non-profit group based in Plano, and five mothers of adults with I/DDs who were deprived of the benefits of the program--alleges that DHA's actions violate the Americans with Disabilities Act, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, the Fair Housing Act, and state law.
