United States filed a complaint in United States v. Woodcock (W.D. Pa.), alleging that defendants Allen and Heidi Woodcock, who own and manage the subject property, discriminated on the basis of sex in violation of the Fair Housing Act (FHA)

Following a complaint by our Fair Housing Law Center, the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) conducted an investigation, issued a charge of discrimination, and the case was referred to the Department of Justice. The DOJ complaint alleges that Defendant Allen Woodcock sexually harassed the HUD complainant while he was at the subject property to perform maintenance, and that Defendants retaliated by evicting the HUD Complainant after she reported Allen Woodcock’s harassment to Heidi Woodcock.
