Tenant wins $14,000 in service-animal dispute with Scott housing agency

September 27, 2012
The Georgetown Housing Authority has paid a tenant $14,000 after it refused to accommodate her need for a service animal, according to the Kentucky Commission on Human Rights.
     The commission found probable cause that the housing agency discriminated against Johnna French in violation of the Kentucky Civil Rights Act and the U.S. Fair Housing Act, commission officials said in a news release this week. French made the allegations in February 2010.
