John Bonacorsi Represents Tenants in Class Action against Kansas City Apartment Complex

John Bonacorsi (’19), Tenants’ Rights Attorney at Heartland Center for Jobs & Freedom, was quoted by Kansas City NPR’s KCUR 89.3 after filing a Complaint against Kansas City’s Stonegate Meadows Apartments citing years of uninhabitable conditions and neglect (“Rats and Black Mold: Kansas City Tenants Sue Section 8 Apartments for ‘Unbearable’ Neglect,” Apr. 13). “At the same time as tenants are living there, trying to make the best of the situation, Stonegate is plastering their doors with rent demands and eviction notices when their complaints are consistently falling on deaf ears. It’s extremely concerning no matter what kind of status the property is, but it’s particularly so when this is supposed to be low-income, affordable housing for some of the most vulnerable tenants who live in our communities.”
