Housing discrimination suit settled

December 17, 2014
Elite Riverview Apartments, the Miami rental complex that was sued for discrimination in May after it allegedly denied Blacks to view rental units, has settled the case out of court, according to legal documents obtained by The Miami Times.
     The complaint that was originally filed in the U.S. Southern District of Florida, was dismissed Nov. 17 after Elite went into mediation talks with the plaintiff, the Housing Opportunities for Project Excellence (HOPE).
     According to the legal documents signed by both parties Nov. 5, HOPE and Elite entered into a settlement agreement whose terms will be enforced by the court. The terms and monetary awards of the agreement were undisclosed.
     Because of a confidentiality clause in the settlement, neither party can comment on the agreement.
