Military Families Sue Over Housing Conditions

October 30, 2019

Eight families filed a lawsuit this week over the conditions of privatized housing at Randolph Air Force Base, Texas, and Laughlin Air Force Base, Texas. The suit alleges that the landlord, Hunt Military Communities, “subject[ed] tenant service members and their families to atrocious conditions, including pervasive mold and other airborne toxins,” Military Times reported.
The families, who are from the Army, Navy and Air Force, are asking for an unspecified amount of money, but their attorney said it will be “in the millions to tens of millions of dollars.”
Hunt Military Communities told Military Times in a statement that it was aware of the suit.
“We believe the lawsuit is without merit and intend to vigorously defend the company against these baseless claims,” the statement said.
