Chapman v Latham

#W00-85
Chapman v Latham
Milan

FHC Cooperating Attorney Gayle Rosen filed suit on behalf of Stacey and Bradlee Chapman. According to Mrs. Chapman, her family was denied the rental of a duplex apartment in Milan, Michigan because her then fourteen-year-old son would be living in the apartment.  According to the suit David Latham, owner of the apartment, advised the Chapmans that he would not be interested in renting to a family with a teenaged child.  Testing by the FHC supported the Chapman’s claim of discrimination based on familial status.  Filed in Federal District Court, the case was assigned to Judge John Corbett O’Meara.

Court: Federal
Settlement: $9,500
