housing - sec. 8 - recertification - false information - intent

MaCool v. Berks County Housing Authority – July 30, 2018 – unpublished* memorandum opinion

Held:  Where tenant “unequivocally...did not provide true and correct and complete information on her recertification forms,” the Housing Authority had the right and discretion to remove  the tenant from the sec. 8 program, regardless of the trial court’s finding that the tenant did not intend to lie.
