The manager of my bldg bamed on my door at 4am and i mean to the highest decimal screaming my car alarm is going off and waking her up (I dont think it was mine) another time she came knocking on my door asking what are some white people doing leaving my apt 730am then played the video back said she made a mistake but harrassed my girlfriends brother in the back parking lot who was coming to my apt who is white and so is the manager by the way. I was in the back parking lot 3 days ago getting dropped off by a friend we sat in the lot briefly. I came in got a phone call from the manager screaming asking why was i coming the back door and why was i in her parking spot and she stated she is going to pull my lease. I got a notice stating my lease will not be renewed and i have to be out by Aug. 31st or face eviction no reason given as to why.
The first question that must be answered regarding suing in conciliation court is "what are your damages?" With only the limited facts you've provided, I don't see a claim that would be appropriate for conciliation court.
Since you live in Ramsey County, an action in housing court might be possible, but again there aren't really enough facts here to address that question adequately. Important facts that would inform the decision about an action in housing court include: (1) do you have a written lease?; (2) what is the lease duration (month-to-month, six-month, year)?; (3) where are you in the lease term, that is how soon does the lease end?; (4) if your lease is written, what does it say about the landlord's right to terminate the lease; (5) has your landlord complied with the lease AND applicable state law regarding terminating your lease?
Working with only what you've posted, I'd suggest finding a new place to live as soon as practical and worry about any legal action after you've secured your housing.
