Judge tells parish to back off in housing dispute

A federal judge has ordered St. Bernard Parish to stop interfering with the development of four mixed-income apartment complexes.

On Friday, the parish ordered Provident Realty Advisors to stop construction, leading to the ruling later in the day from U.S. District Judge Ginger Berrigan. Berrigan already has ruled three time that the parish’s attempts to stop or delay the housing is racially discriminatory.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development also has filed a complaint against the parish, saying that black residents in the New Orleans area are in need of affordable rental housing.
