As the June deadline approached for Dooley House to finish its AIDS transitional housing project, the nonprofit's contractor is in a legal fight with the city, holding up the project.
On Apr. 23, County Superior Court Judge Faustino Fernandez- Vina ordered the city to grant the remaining allocated funds to Dooley House.
But Seven Caesars has yet to receive a dime, said Laverne Hicks, site manager for the Hogan House project. Hicks is worried the project won't be complete by the June 30 federal deadline.
"There is a pending motion for reconsideration on this matter," said city spokesman Robert Corrales. He wouldn't elaborate on why the city is continuing to fight the matter.
