In NYC Homeless Class Action, Move of Bronx Client To Queens Cited, Nitty Gritty in SDNY

SDNY COURTHOUSE, August 17 – In the ongoing NYC homeless class action Butler v. City of New York, the plaintiffs have moved for a preliminary injunctions against the involuntary movement of any class member from a de-densification hotel until notice and meetings and reasonable accommodations.     

        On August 17, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Valerie E. Caproni held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it.  

In the plaintiffs' papers, they give the example of "AG" and say "he was scheduled to transfer to Queens despite an RA request for a facility closer to his medical providers in The Bronx, but was told by shelter staff he would have to appeal once he arrived at the new shelter." 

 In person, the plaintiffs' counsel gave more examples of a lack continuity in communication from social workers.

  Judge Caproni remarked, I'm sorry to say but that's below my paygrade... Nothing in the settlement requires this level of hand-holding.

 But still she inquired, into what percentage of shelter residents show up for the offered meetings (over 70%).

The case is Butler et al v. City of New York et al., 15-cv-3783 (Caproni)
