NYCHA’s Lead Poisoning Lawsuit, Including City Officials, Moves Forward

NYCHA

Earlier this week, a Manhattan federal judge decided that Mayor de Blasio will not be disjoined from a lawsuit concerning lead-paint poisoning of residents of New York City’s public housing. According to the New York Post: “Judge William Pauley ruled that de Blasio must face the suit alleging that NYCHA poisoned children through repeated failures to fix dangerous lead-paint conditions in its apartments- and then lied to federal regulators about required inspections.”

The New York Post also states that the other defendants in the lawsuit include: NYC’s deputy mayors, the former New York City Public Housing’s Chairwoman, who resigned in 2017 due to the lead-paint cover-up fiasco, and other city officials and ex-NYCHA employees.
