Court Enters Consent Order Resolving Allegations that Defendants Discriminated on the Basis of Disability by Refusing to Grant Reasonable Accommodation

The court entered a consent order in United States v. Dunnwood Acres Apts., LLC, et al., (E.D. Mo.).  The Fair Housing Act election complaint, which was filed on June 17, 2020, alleged that the defendants discriminated on the basis of disability by refusing to grant a reasonable accommodation for a transfer to a unit with fewer stairs based on the complainant’s daughter’s mobility impairment.  The consent order requires the Defendants to pay $44,000 in monetary damages to the complainant’s family, and includes injunctive relief, training, monitoring, and a provision requiring Defendants to vacate and shield from public disclosure a state court judgment they obtained against the complainant.
