Pomare: Judge reserves decision on families fighting eviction
The hearing has been heard and the judge has reserved his decision for the three Lower Hutt families fighting eviction.
Billy Taylor, Huia Tamaka, Robyn Wynther and their children were issued eviction notices from Housing New Zealand in March following a gang-related incident.
The three women have refused to leave their properties in Farmer Crescent Pomare and appeared in court yesterday appealing a decision from the Tenancy Tribunal ordering them out.
Their lawyer Elizabeth Hall says they have been discriminated against because their partners are Mongrel Mob members.
Housing New Zealand lawyer Steve Haszard refutes that, saying the families are being evicted because of their behaviour, not their gang affiliations.
