WBAL and the Daily Record are both reporting that certain assets belonging to the Baltimore Housing Authority are to be seized by the sherrif’s department in order to pay for lead paint judgements the City has refused to pay.

The assets include vehicles and computers, which will be auctioned off.  Evan Goldman, the attorney who had the foresight to go after non-federally owned assets, said “It’s going to be a public auction advertised in the paper, and anyone can go there and bid on a non-federal vehicle and all the funds are going to be used to pay the judgment.”

By the way, in case you were wondering — taxpayers have been paying the tab for HABC’s legal fees.

    That’s comical. They’ll just replace the things that are seized with newer versions that cost 4x what the old ones sell for. What a waste of tax money. They should have their funds frozen until the organization is dissolved or they pay up for the judgements.

      Well they can’t really dissolve the Housing Authority. Would be interesting to see what would happen if the Feds moved in and assumed control. Someone needs to, what a mess.
