Judge Expedites DC Property Tax Lawsuit
Today the Washington Examiner reported a story that adds to the week's news about the alleged financial misdeeds of the District government. On Wednesday a class action lawsuit that claims the city deliberately over-assessed over 45,000 DC homeowners (in 2002) has been moved forward by a DC Superior Court judge. Despite the judge finding the property tax assessments in question "arbitrary and capricious", the city plans to appeal. If you're wondering if your home is in the class, the judge also ordered that all affected homeowners be notified.
