LAS Demands NYCHA Immediately Terminate Eviction Proceeding Against Client Suffering from Terminal Cancer

The Legal Aid Society called on the New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) to immediately terminate an eviction proceeding against a Legal Aid client – William Sanchez – who is 64 years old and suffers from stage-four cancer, reports the New York Daily News.

“Despite Mr. Sanchez’s Stage 4 cancer diagnosis and failing health, we are shocked that NYCHA continues to prioritize his eviction. We demand that the Housing Authority stay its holdover proceeding against Mr. Sanchez immediately and let our client live his life in peace without having to worry about becoming homeless,” said Michael Klinger, Staff Attorney with the Brooklyn Neighborhood Office at The Legal Aid Society.
