The Fair Housing Center of Metropolitan Detroit (FHCMD) extends its thanks and appreciation to the plaintiffs, testers, witnesses and attorneys who have assisted the cause of fair housing by participating in the following litigations.
The fair housing community lost one of its most revered advocates with the passing of Cliff Schrupp; who died on September 11th, 2013.
This year FHCMD sponsored a litigation seminar aimed at attorneys interested in expanding their practice into the enriching and rewarding area of Public Service Law. A keynote presentation by John Relman, a prominent fair housing litigator from Washington, D.C., was followed by presentations from FHCMD cooperating attorneys John Obee, Chui Karega and Steve Tomkowiak.
The Fair Housing Center of Metropolitan Detroit (FHC), in order to advance the cause of fair housing and to help secure the legal rights of complainants who allege violations of state or federal fair housing laws, enters into "Agreements" with certain private practice attorneys. Those attorneys, referred to as "FHC Cooperating Attorneys", agree to accept FHC referred cases in accordance with the terms outlined in the FHC Contingent Fee Agreement.
