Lawsuit seeks to block Norfolk’s plan to move people out of public housing in St. Paul’s

Residents are asking a federal judge to block Norfolk’s St. Paul’s area redevelopment plan, which they say would further segregate and disadvantage black residents and thus violate federal law.

In a 51-page complaint, they argue that the city of Norfolk and its housing authority have failed to provide the bulk of residents that will be moved out of St. Paul’s with appropriate housing, and that the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development is complicit by signing off on the plan.
