We evaluated whether www.LiveJustice.org was an effective way to positively affect outcomes for low-income tenants in housing court. This was done by administering surveys to tenants present at Worcester Housing Court and by examining previous cases from May 2003 to February 2004. The survey and archive results were compared with similar research completed in 2002 to see if any significant changes occurred. We concluded that although the situation for tenants was improving, it could not be attributed solely to LiveJustice.
