Two Portland women recently settled a sex harassment fair housing claim for
$95,000. While tenants in an apartment complex in Portland, the women were verbally and
physically assaulted by the manager of the apartment building. Statements made by
the manager to the women indicate that he viewed them as
immigrated from Mexico and because they would be reluctant to have their families
learn of the assaults.
The complainant, who had physical and mental disabilities, rented a room at the Lambert Street Room and Board Facility, which was licenced as an adult care home. Several times a day residents of Lambert Street would pick up their medications at the adjacent Mt. Scott Residential Care Home.
Frequently the complainant chose to skip his medication because of its unpleasant side effects. According to the complainant, the managert hreatened to evict him if he did not take his medication. The complainant filed a civil rights Bureau of Labor and Industries.
