FJI Settles Four Housing Discrimination Complaints on behalf of HOPE Fair Housing Center

FJI, on behalf of Housing Opportunities Project for Excellence (HOPE), filed a series of lawsuits against various real estate companies and condominium associations for violations of the Fair Housing Act.  HOPE testers discovered that the associations had a policy prohibiting children under a certain age from living in the condo, and the real estate companies published ads repeating that.  FJI was successful in securing settlements that included monetary damages, the condos agreeing to repeal the policies, and the real estate companies agreeing to train their agents to ensure that ads are not published with discriminatory statements against families with children.  These settlements enable HOPE to continue its efforts to advocate for the victims of housing discrimination, and represent one step in FJI’s fight to eradicate discrimination in housing.
