After ruling in Kincaid v. Fresno that the city of Fresno’s practice of seizing and destroying the personal possessions of homeless residents violated their constitutional rights, federal judge Oliver W. Wanger approves a settlement in which the city contributes to an account for the homeless plaintiffs to meet housing-related costs, including security deposits, first and last month’s rent, or monthly rental payments.
