African-American Family Hopes for Justice in Fair Housing Case

The Fair Housing Center has aided in the filing of a race discrimination lawsuit against a property in Ypsilanti Township, MI. The lawsuit alleges that a white tenant attacked a black teenager, yet the black family faced eviction within two days of the incident, while the white family did not receive an eviction notice until after receiving sentencing for assault and battery seven months later.

The lawsuit, filed on December 19, 2014, brings forth claims of race discrimination for fair housing violations under the Civil Rights Act of 1866, the Fair Housing Amendments Act, and the Michigan Elliot-Larsen Civil Rights Act.

Read the Press Release here.

If you would like a copy of the Complaint filed in federal court, Scott v Swan Creek and Hometown American Management, L.L.C., Case No. 14-14828, please email kcuhran@fhcmichigan.org.
