Housing Discrimination

A substantial body of federal, state, and even local law is devoted to discrimination in the renting of housing. Landlords may not engage in discrimination based on race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, or family size. Economic discrimination is a legitimate method to determine the ability of prospective tenants to pay the rent. But the source of the tenants’ income (e.g., government support) is not a legitimate basis to deny housing.  If improper discrimination can be proven, judgments and settlements for hundreds of thousands of dollars are not unusual. The laws allow for the recovery of attorneys’ fees and punitive damages.
