Mobile home park owner, manager, to pay $27K to settle bias claim

June 16, 1998
Housing and Urban Development Secretary Andrew Cuomo today announced that an Oregon mobile home park owner and the park's manager have agreed to pay $27,000 to settle housing discrimination charges accusing them of refusing to rent to a couple because the couple had a 4-year-old son.
      Larry Angell, owner of the Scofield Mobile Home Park near Salem, OR, and park manager Hazel Dwigans agreed to make the $27,000 payment to settle the discrimination charges filed by HUD. HUD accused the two of illegally discriminating against Paul and Margo Gibson and their then-4-year-old son, Christopher, by refusing to allow the family to live in the park in April 1997.
