Housing attorney Andrew Zacks loses his claim that Tenderloin Housing Clinic is not really a nonprofit agency after THC wins Suit over legal fees. The case is to be appealed by Zacks who hopes to force the clinic to disgorge hundreds of thousands of dollars in attorney fees the clinic has collected over the years.
