Settled: UNITED STATES V. VANDERVENNEN

The staff of the Fair Housing Center of West Michigan (FHCWM) in Grand Rapids was crucial in gathering evidence and assisting the United States Department of Justice in the filing of a sexual harassment in United States v. Vandervennen. The case settled for $510,000 to be paid by the defendants to victims of the defendant as well as a $40,000 civil penalty to the federal government. Congratulations to the FHCWM and the DOJ attorneys for obtaining such an outstanding result.
