Suit accuses Lancaster and Palmdale of racial bias in Section 8 crackdown

Jun 7, 2011 10:57:54 PM- latimes.com

Elected leaders in Lancaster and Palmdale have waged an "unrelenting war" against low-income blacks and Latinos who receive public assistance in a campaign to drive them out of the historically white Antelope Valley, civil rights lawyers alleged in a lawsuit filed Tuesday.
