Ewen v Wilson White

#W98-27
Ewen v Wilson White
Ann Arbor

Refusing to count her student loan as income in their rent calculations, Wilson White denied University of Michigan student Jamie Ewen an off-campus apartment.  Ewen came to the FHC and then filed suit in state court under the City of Ann Arbor Human Rights Ordinance.  Believed to be the first case filed under the Ann Arbor city ordinance since city council voted to grant the right to private action, this case was filed by Attorney Nick Roumel from University of Michigan Student Legal Services.

Court: State
Settlement: $1,500
