Insurance discrimination claim dismissed again

March 18, 2004
According to a statement from Housing Advocates Inc., city residents are the victims of a "greedy industry that has extracted a racial profit . . . of approximately $34 million in the last four years."
     A private fair housing organization, Housing Advocates in April filed charges of unlawful discrimination against several major insurance companies with the Ohio Civil Rights Commission.
     Last week, the commission ruled that Housing Advocates failed to make their point and unanimously dismissed the complaint for the second time. The dismissal seemed to leave little uncertainty as to the thoughts of commission members.
