Minnesota HOA Agrees to Pay Over $100,000 to Settle Fair Housing Case

The December 2013 blog entry reported the Condominiums of Greenbrier Village case that was filed in Minnesota alleging discrimination against families with children based upon rules regulating the use of common areas. The parties entered a consent order this month that includes an injunction, the Association’s agreement to implement a written nondiscrimination policy, and mandatory fair housing discrimination training for the board and the manager. The Association agreed to pay $ 100,000 to six affected families and $ 10,000 to the Department of Justice as a civil penalty. Below is a link to the Consent Order:
