ECBAWM Files Lawsuit Against Long Island Landlord Alleging Disability Discrimination
- March 15, 2011
ECBAWM attorneys filed a lawsuit in federal court alleging that the owner of five apartment complexes in Suffolk County discriminates against people with disabilities by imposing fees and surcharges on tenants with service animals, quoting higher rent for the same size apartment, and refusing to change rental policies to accommodate renters’ disabilities as required by federal, state, and local fair housing laws. The plaintiff in the case is represented by ECBAWM’s Diane L. Houk.
