Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
13-246 1st Cir. N/A N/A N/A N/A OT 2013

Issue: Whether a housing authority, in administering contracts under the federal Section 8 program for low income housing, may deny to participating landlords an annual adjustment in reimbursable rental rates because the owner did not produce a supporting “market comparability study”—when those contracts and federal law require that an adjustment is “automatic” unless the authority produces a supporting market study and affirmatively “determine[s]” on that basis that an adjustment is unwarranted.
