Detroit Code Enforcement and the Housing Court Debate

Abstract

Judicial and administrative enforcement of housing codes in Detroit is similar to the pattern found in other major American cities. It is therefore not surprising that Detroit is carefully evaluating the strengths and weaknesses of housing courts as a possible answer to its current enforcement problems. This Article will attempt to outline the existing enforcement situation, assess the probable effect of a housing court and sound a call of caution to those rushing headlong into housing court reform.
