Owner Not Required to Move Resident to Two-Bedroom Unit
Facts: A disabled African-American resident sued a New York owner for discrimination based on her race or her disability. The resident lives in a one-bedroom unit with a daughter who’s also her live-in aide. According to the owner, the resident never added her daughter as an additional tenant to the lease or as a live-in aid. The resident claimed that even though her name was the next and only name on the waiting list for a two-bedroom unit at the site, the management unreasonably denied her the unit.
