Richfield residents wait for decision on injunction in discrimination suit

April 14, 2016
After a court hearing last week, a handful of Concierge Apartments residents expected to hear by April 15 whether they will have to move out of the Richfield apartment complex by May 31.
     After the September sale of what was then called Crossroads at Penn Apartments, the new property owner established new rental criteria that meant many of the 698-unit building’s tenants would have to move out, prompting a class-action lawsuit filed against Soderberg Apartment Specialists and MSP Crossroads in February.
     The suit, claiming housing discrimination, names 35 tenants as plaintiffs. Of those, an estimated five to eight residents still reside at Concierge, according to court documents filed on their behalf.
