Lincoln Military Housing, which owns and operates dozens of on-base and off-base military housing communities throughout Southern California, agreed to pay $200,000 to resolve allegations that it unlawfully evicted active-duty servicemembers and their families by obtaining default judgments against them in violation of the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act (SCRA). According to the government, Lincoln Military requested default judgments against servicemembers without filing the affidavits required by the SCRA to alert the court of the tenants’ military status. This put servicemembers at risk of being evicted without having an opportunity to participate in the case and without having an attorney assigned to represent them. DOJ
