More of a public service announcement of sorts, but I wanted to see if anyone had any thoughts about this- I just read a story in the Star Tribune about the settlement of a class-action lawsuit involving tenants claiming a violation of fair housing laws when a developer bought an apartment building in Richfield and gentrified the property.
Does anyone have any insight into the case? I'm assuming the lawsuit had some teeth considering they settled, and I think it's always smart to learn from others' mistakes.
"He also changed requirements for new applicants, denying Section 8 voucher holders, raising income requirements for tenants and requiring photo identification."
OH THE HUMANITY! I can't be the only one who is rubbed the wrong way by this settlement. Making it very hard to stay apolitical on here, which is a goal of mine.
This is a big loss for property owners and a joke. In the end it is only a $1,000/unit and will only take about 4 months to recover, but Jim did nothing wrong in my opinion.
