Hundreds of current and former tenants of Sage Management housing in Baltimore will get nearly $1 million in compensation and debt forgiveness under a settlement of a lawsuit that accused the rental company of charging illegal late fees.

The complaint also alleged the landlord hid "agent fees" by combining them with legitimate court costs.
