CHA takes back eviction notice

Posted: Updated:

One week after the Chattanooga Housing Authority said it would evict a man, for damage caused by his wheelchair the organization is taking it back.

Monday, Goodwill of Chattanooga gave Jeffrey Henson a new wheelchair, to replace his broken one, after seeing his story here on Channel 3.

Meanwhile, CHA sent Henson and his attorney a letter Monday saying it no longer plans to evict Henson for damage caused to his make-shift handicap accessible apartment home.
CHA told Henson's attorney its intent was not to evict Henson,  but move him to an assisted living facility.

Henson's attorney says that is still a violation of his fair housing rights.  She plans to head to court on his behalf next week.

We'll be there and let you know what happens.
