Case Summary

On September 09, 2011, the United States filed a lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York under the Fair Housing Act against the architects and developers of an apartment building. The plaintiff asked the Court for injunctive, declaratory, and monetary relief, claiming that the defendants designed and constructed the complex in a manner that was inaccessible to persons with disabilities.

On October 5, 2011, the plaintiff entered into a consent decree with the developers which required extensive retrofitting of non-compliant areas in both the public/common use areas of the building and in the apartments themselves, payment of $60,000 to compensate aggrieved persons, and a $35,000 civil penalty.

On January 26, 2012, the parties entered into a consent decree which required that the defendant comply with the FHA and pay a $20,000 civil penalty.

The case terminated on January 26, 2012.
