Lowry Grove Lawsuit Status
Lowry Grove Update
On Monday, August 1, 2016 an “amicus curiae” (friend of the court) was filed on behalf of residents/Aeon re Lowry Grove by the Office of the Attorney General of Minnesota. An amicus curiae is the name for a brief filed with the court by someone who is not a party to the case. This means that the Office of the Attorney General believes that the court’s decision may affect its interest*. The action shows that the Attorney General thinks the voices of the nearly 100 families that are facing homelessness if the Lowry Grove manufactured home park closes should be heard. Ultimately the judge decides whether or not the case will be heard, but this is a step in that direction.
On Monday, June 27, 2016, Aeon and co-plaintiff Antonia Alvarez, on behalf of the residents of Lowry Grove manufactured home park, filed a lawsuit with Hennepin County District Court to preserve the manufactured home park as a critically important affordable housing resource. Aeon joined the residents fight because as a national nonprofit leader in quality, affordable housing we are determined to help neighborhoods maintain stability.
