Weeks after Miami-Dade honor, Milton family is again sued for discrimination

September 14, 2015
Earlier this month, when Miami-Dade Commissioners named a street after real estate developer José Milton, they brushed aside the fact that Milton’s company had been previously accused in court of racial discrimination, saying the allegations had been settled decades ago.
     Milton had donated money to county parks and other charitable causes since the days of the allegations, commissioners said.
     “He was a great man, helped this community…Sometimes we’ve got to be very cautious as to what happened in the past,” said Commissioner Jose “Pepe” Diaz, who co-sponsored the name change.
