Landlord tries to evict tenants in retaliation – 844-292-1318 Ohio legal aid

CINCINNATI (Rich Jaffe) — “There’s obviously a big difference in power between the landlord and a low income person renting an apartment but their actions of trying to get a landlord to comply with building and health code violations, that’s protected by law,” said the managing attorney for Legal Aid Society of southwest Ohio.

A local landlord tried to evict the tenants who’ve been blowing the whistle on deplorable conditions in his building. But Local 12 is getting in his way.

A landlord is trying to silence his tenants and keep them from talking with Local 12 News and city officials about the mess inside one of his apartment buildings. The residents told Local 12 Wednesday, Jan. 28, about their concerns that power may be cut off because the owner, Terrance Sebastian, hadn’t been paying his bills.

Even as the story aired, Sebastian was apparently trying to intimidate the tenants with eviction orders. But when tenants officially complain about sub-standard conditions in buildings it is illegal by both state and local law for landlords to retaliate against them. That was clearly something Terrence Sebastian of TBC Enterprises did not understand.

Patrick Perotti speaks about using Cy Pres.

Ohio Lawyers Give Back was founded by Dworken & Bernstein Co., L.P.A. to promote the use of cy pres in class action settlements. When a class action is settled, plaintiff and defendant agree to a fund amount to pay all class members. Since many class members have moved, passed-away, or can’t be found, millions of settlement dollars go unclaimed. That settlement money is intended to benefit the class—rather than revert to the wrongdoing defendant—so the ancient doctrine of cy pres is now being used to distribute the unclaimed money to charities and non profits.

Over million dollars has already been distributed, just by the sponsors, a single law firm. If cy pres were used more broadly, hundreds of millions of dollars each year would be available to help charities, non-profits, and the communities where we live. This website is dedicated to advancing the use of cy pres in all class action settlements where a large pool of unclaimed settlement funds is expected.
