Baltimore RENEW was founded to build on the success of six community associations who used the Community Bill of Rights to file a lawsuit against Scott Wizig, the owner of 57 vacant properties within the boundaries of the associations. Working with the Community Law Center, the University of Maryland School of Law and pro bono lawyers from Venable, LLP the associations sought and won injunctive relief and a judgment against Mr. Wizig and his numerous LLCs.
