Owner Not Liable for Discrimination
Facts: An occupant sued the local PHA for discrimination for failure to lease him the unit in which he claimed he had resided with his mother before her death.
As a child, the occupant moved with his mother and her husband into the unit. But records show that he moved out of the unit in 1976. His mother continued to live in the unit after her son's departure and until she died in July 2007. At the time of her death, she was the unit’s tenant of record and its sole authorized occupant.
