Lawsuit filed against Vista Shadow Mountain Apartments
TULSA, Okla. (KOKI) — Now former residents of a south Tulsa apartment complex are fighting for justice after being forced to move.
A lawsuit filed by two now former Vista Shadow Mountain Apartment residents claims issues have gone on for years.
Documents state, “the greedy unethical landlord of Vista must be held accountable.”
The residents call the complex out on unsafe and unsanitary living conditions.
The lawsuit says maintenance was deferred, utility bills went unpaid and residents were forced to live in unsafe conditions while “collecting rent and payments from Section 8 vouchers.”
The lawyer representing the residents, Frederic Dorwart, says they believe there is a clear violation of people’s rights.
Eric Hallett with Housing Advocacy of Legal Aid Services says residents were forced out illegally and that he is encouraging them to seek justice.
Lawyers are going after $10,000 for residents after forcefully having to move and uproot their lives.
