Site Manager's Applicant Screening Is Discriminatory
Facts: An applicant for a rental unit in Tonawanda, N.Y., alleged that a site manager denied her housing because she has a family with children. After seeing a for-rent sign outside the Sherwood Terrace Apartments, the prospective renter spoke with the site manager by telephone and made an appointment to see a unit. When the site manager first saw the applicant, he asked if the two children accompanying her would be living with her. She said they would.
