Kentucky commission on human rights accepts 3 settlement agreements

April 22, 2012
The Kentucky Commission on Human Rights last week publicly accepted three conciliation agreements in fair housing cases, including one in Madison County.
     The conciliation agreements were negotiated during complaint investigations, the commission said in a prepared statement. The commission is a state agency that enforces state and federal civil rights laws.
     Jonathan and Tiffany Ratliff alleged that Foxglove Management LLC of Richmond discriminated against them by questioning whether Tiffany Ratliff's service dog was a "true" service animal intended to help her with a disability, the commission said. Foxglove Management denied discrimination and said the Ratliffs failed to provide requested documents to verify the dog's status as a service animal.
