Case Summary

On July 27th, 2016, a 68-year-old woman who identified as lesbian brought a civil right action under the Fair Housing Act and the Illinois Human Rights Act. The action was brought in the Northern District Court of Illinois. The plaintiff sought declaratory, injunctive, and compensatory and punitive damages against Defendants Glen St. Andrew Living Community (GSALC) and their administrators.

On July 27th, 2016, a 68-year-old woman who identified as lesbian brought a civil right action under the Fair Housing Act and the Illinois Human Rights Act. The action was brought in the Northern District Court of Illinois. The plaintiff sought declaratory, injunctive, and compensatory and punitive damages against Defendants Glen St. Andrew Living Community (GSALC) and their administrators.

The plaintiff alleged that, throughout her time at GSALC, she was subjected to a pattern of discrimination and harassment because of her sex and sexual orientation, including persistent verbal harassment, threats, intimidation, and three separate assaults, at the hands of other residents. She alleged that she was called countless homophobic slurs, taunted about her relationship with partner and their child, threatened with bodily harm, bullied and intimidated in all of the communal spaces in the facility, and physically injured by other residents. She further alleged that, although she repeatedly complained about the sex- and sexual orientation-based harassment to GSALC staff, they gave no response. Instead, it was alleged that staff marginalized and alienated Marsha and retaliated against her for complaining about the harassment.

The defendants moved to dismiss the case on August 22, 2016, which the court granted on January 18, 2017. The court held that the plaintiff failed to state a claim upon which relief could be granted because she did not allege a motive or intent to discriminate on the part of the defendants, that GSALC housing was discriminatory by being uninhabitable, or that the defendants acted because of her sexual orientation or gender.

The plaintiff appealed to the Seventh Circuit. On September 25, 2018, the appeals court issued an order, remanding the case to the district court based on a more expansive reading of the Fair Housing Act. It held that liability exists under the FHA when a landlord receives notice of tenant-on-tenant harassment based on a protected status, but does not take any reasonable steps to stop that harassment. The appeals court applied the Title IX standard of deliberate indifference to the FHA. After this Seventh Circuit decision, the defendant had petitioned to the Supreme Court, but on February 22, 2019, the Supreme Court denied the petition for writ of certiorari.

In light of the Seventh Circuit's holding back in the district court, the plaintiff filed an amended complaint on October 31, 2018. It reiterated the allegations of her initial complaint and basing her legal conclusions on the standard promulgated by the Seventh Circuit. However, on March 4, 2019, the two parties filed to jointly stipulate to the dismissal of the lawsuit with prejudice, having reached an independent settlement agreement. On March 5, 2019, the district court dismissed that case with prejudice. The case is now closed.
