The District’s chief lawyer has asked D.C. Superior Court to hold Sanford Capital in civil contempt for allegedly failing to fix “numerous housing code violations,” including a raw sewage leak, at a 61-unit D.C. property called Terrace Manor. Sanford is concurrently pursuing bankruptcy for Terrace Manor, even though the company sought to remove residents and did not fill vacancies at the once-vibrant property.
