Tenants will have day in court sooner

Washington Post Editors

D.C. Superior Court on Wednesday reduced the amount of time it will take for District tenants who sue landlords for housing code violations to have their day in court.

The court created an “expedited” calendar that will allow tenants to have a hearing before a judge within 21 days, as opposed to 90 days for such lawsuits now.

Tenants with such issues can download forms from the court’s Web site at www.dccourts.gov/housingconditions.
