Condo parking case settles for $65,000

June 25, 1998
Officials representing an Alexandria condominium have agreed to a $65,000 out-of-court settlement in response to allegations that they refused to "reasonably accommodate" a couple's request for a handicapped parking space.
      Under terms of the agreement, Alexandria Knolls West officials do not admit any violation or liability but will pay the couple, Albert and Andrea Leahy, $43,000, the Fair Housing Council of Greater Washington $20,000 and Long & Foster Real Estate Inc. $2,000. The state Attorney General's office sued on behalf of the couple and negotiated the settlement.
