Today, we announced the filing of a wrongful eviction lawsuit on behalf of Hashmatullah Rasooly and Wazhma Rasooly against Parkview Gardens, LP (“Parkview”). According to the complaint, the Rasoolys, along with their two children, resided at Parkview’s apartment complex in Riverdale since August 2022. The Rasoolys unexpectedly lost their jobs and struggled to keep up with their rent payments because of financial hardships caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Parkview commenced eviction proceedings against the Rasoolys, and the Rasoolys ultimately consented to entry of a judgment that required them to vacate the apartment no earlier than September 10, 2023.

On August 16, 2023, while the Rasooly family was away shopping for groceries, Parkview representatives unlawfully changed the locks to the apartment, effectively evicting the Rasoolys without any prior notice. Parkview egregious conduct directly contravened the district court's order, leaving the family homeless and without their personal belongings. The Rasoolys allege that Parkview even disposed of some of their possessions without their consent, further exacerbating their distress.
