FILED: Dunbar v. North Park Cooperative and P.P.S. Of Michigan, LLC
NEWS ITEM, JUNE 2014 - - Delores Dunbar, a senior citizen and a person with a disability, made requests numerous times to the North Park Cooperative Board and the current and former management companies over the years for reserved handicap parking. Although her treating physicians provided supporting statements as to her disability and the need for reserved parking, she was denied time after time. Upon contacting the Fair Housing Center of Metropolpolitan Detroit (FHCMD), a written request was sent to the management company in support of Ms. Dunbar’s reserved parking matter, and they refused to consider the matter. FHCMD referred the matter to Cooperating Attorney Steve Tomkowiak and a federal lawsuit was filed. The case has been assigned to the Honorable George Steeh.
