HOUSTON - Late Friday evening, seniors fighting to stay in their flood-damaged high-rise living center filed a lawsuit against their landlord.

Only three residents are named in the suit but others plan to join as well.

They are suing the Houston Housing Authority who claimed earlier this week the building is no longer safe for residents. The residents were given a have a five day deadline to move out.

HHA has since relaxed that and offered to pay moving expenses and find new apartments for the residents. At least 50 of them are in new homes.

Others say the only places left are either too expensive, too far away, or in areas they don't feel safe.
