March 2017 – KBK partner Philip M. Kelly joined the nonprofit Inner City Law Center (ICLC) in filing a lawsuit to halt the illegal evictions of long-term, low-income tenants living in an apartment building in a rapidly gentrifying Westlake neighborhood.
In filing the pro bono case, Kelly pointed out that most of the residents are first-generation immigrants and monolingual Spanish speakers. David Aigboboh, an attorney with ICLC’s Homelessness Prevention Project, said many are disabled, and some have lived in the property at 240 N. Robinson Street in Los Angeles for as long as 40 years. They also noted that all the residents are protected by the Los Angeles Rent Stabilization Ordinance, and said the landlord has ignored the requirements of this ordinance.
