June 21, 2016 Settlement Secured Under “Keep Chicago Renting” Ordinance

With the Lawyers’ Committee for Better Housing (LCBH), a firm team of Partner Christopher Tompkins and  Associate Jeremy S. Dunnaback helped obtain a settlement for a  pro bono client in a case that sought relief under the City of Chicago’s  “Protecting Tenants in Foreclosed Rental Property” Ordinance.  The ordinance, commonly known as the “Keep Chicago Renting” Ordinance, went into effect in 2013 to address a spike in evictions of renters living in properties that fell into foreclosure in the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis.
