KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Tenants who sued over “horrendous” living conditions at a Kansas City low-income housing development have been awarded $52 million in damages.

Jackson County Judge Joel Fehestock on Tuesday found in favor of the tenants, who sued KM-T.E.H. Realty 8 and Michael Fein last year for ignoring complaints about roach and rat infestations, raw sewage, a lack of air conditioning and heat, and apartment ceilings that had collapsed at the 169-unit complex, KCUR reported.
