Suit Challenges Limits On Homeless Drop-In Center

In St. Paul, Minnesota last week, Listening House, a daytime drop-in center for homeless, disadvantaged and lonely people, filed suit against the city seeking to prevent enforcement of a City Council resolution imposing unworkable limits on the operation of the center at its new home in the basement of First Lutheran Church.  The complaint (full text) in Listening House of St. Paul, Inc. v. City of St. Paul, (MN Dist. Ct., filed 4/2/2018), contends that the restrictions are arbitrary and capricious.  The Twin Cities Pioneer Press reported yesterday that First Lutheran Church has now joined as a plaintiff in the lawsuit.
