apartment discrimination

Postby RugbyD » Mon Mar 26, 2007 11:27 pm

if you think you're a victim, what should you do? what info should you compile? anybody know or deal with a situaiton like this? what is the potential outcome of bringing legal action? this one falls under the "familial status" classification.

The ACLU will give you free advice about what steps to take next and if you have any legal leg to stand on.

Simply get a lawyer Rugby. If you feel you've (or someone you know) has been discriminated against take it to a lawyer and they can tell you if you have a case to build around.

Rugby, did they refuse to rent to you because you're a 600 lb gorilla?

That's not just discrimination; it's speciesism!

The landlord doesn't have the right to decide who rents?

Fair Housing Act

The Fair Housing Act declares a national policy of fair housing throughout the United States. The law makes illegal any discrimination in the sale, lease or rental of housing, or making housing otherwise unavailable, because of race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, or national origin.
