$100K Settlement Announced
A settlement of $100,000 in the matter of FHCMD v. Shelby Park Manor has been reached, reports Cooperating Attorney John A. Obee. After more than a year of testing, the Shelby Township property showed evidence of differences in treatment on the basis of race and familial status. FHCMD filed an action in Federal Court earlier this year. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development played an important role in reaching the settlement. The action was assigned to the Hon. Victoria A. Roberts.
