Arise, et al. v. DHCD (Decision)

Date: 
08/06/2012
Author: 
Janet Sanders, Superior Court Justice, Suffolk

Arise, et al v. DHCD was filed to enjoin DHCD from promulgating regulations which would restrict access to Emergency Assistance. Among other policies challenged was the restriction of EA to only four categories of applicants notwithstanding broader eligibility enumerated by the legislature, and despite a line item requirement for 60 day notice upon proposed changes to eligibility.

The motion for a preliminary injunction was denied.

See litigation materials, including the complaint, motion for a temporary restraining order/ preliminary injunction, memorandum in support of the motion, affidavits and a press release, from Arise.
