Victory, Case Summary or Legal Advisory:


We have a housing discrimination case where the HOA president knocked on the door of a renter in a galabayah.  The president told him he was not welcome and he had to take his stuff and leave.  Thereafter the President began a campaign to remove the tenants who are African-American Muslims.  There are other renters who similarly situated but are not being targeted.  This situation has been particularly difficult for the family because they care for their elderly mother and small children. We are pushing to resolve this matter at mediation.
