@NHLP: Green case "prevented mass evictions" [Update: see correction below.]

[Update late 5/13: had a note from NHLP tonight explaining that the case preventing mass evictions was actually another -- see this later post clearing things up. The rest of this description remains accurate.]

Wow. My writeup last month missed major significance to the housing victory in the California appellate case of Anchor Pacifica Management Co. v. Green. The National Housing Law Project, which contributed a significant amicus brief to the case, says on Twitter that it "prevented mass evictions of seniors in Oakland." Here's their summary. it calls the case "a major victory for residents of affordable housing subsidized by local government" and explains that the decision really does bar evictions without good cause from housing subsidized by a local redevelopment agency.
