Garnerville apartment owners settle housing discrimination case

February 23, 2010
The owners of a Garnerville apartment complex and the federal government have settled a lawsuit involving fair-housing rights.
     People with disabilities who want to live at Tor View Village Apartments now will be able to count housing subsidies as income in their rental applications under the settlement.
     Berk-Cohen Associates at Tor View Village Apartments had been accused of refusing to honor an agreement with a local social services provider that allowed 20 of its 373 garden apartments to be rented to people with mental illness and disabilities.
