CASE ENTRY

Valencia v. City of Springfield, Illinois

Landlords complete significant renovations to enable three disabled renters to live in Springfield, Ill. home. Oh no! Two years later, it’s discovered that there is another group home for disabled residents nearby, and the zoning code prohibits such homes within 600 feet of each other (in zones zoned for single-family residences). Can the city kick the three renters out? The Seventh Circuit says the district court did not err in barring eviction while the case proceeds.
