Franke v McKinley
In May 1994, fifteen-year-old Natasha Franke and her parents Jim and Janet Franke settled their disability discrimination case against McKinley Properties, the owners of Glencose Hills Apartments, for $15,000 plus $3,500 set aside for the installation of an electric exterior door.
Natasha Franke had filed suit against McKinley Properties for refusing to accommodate her disability. Ms. Franke had asked McKinley multiple times to remove a set of stairs leading to her first floor unit.
