Largest apartment builder settles accessibility suit

July 21, 1998
The nation's largest home builder, Pulte Corp., agreed Tuesday to build multi-family housing accessible to the disabled in what Justice Department officials called a "landmark agreement" under the Fair Housing Act.
     The out-of-court agreement calls for Pulte to build accessible housing nationwide, compensate disabled home buyers who were denied housing, and correct design flaws in large housing developments in Florida, Illinois and Virginia.
