ECBA Files Race Discrimination Lawsuit Against Owners of Multiple Brooklyn Apartment Buildings

Last week, ECBA filed a race discrimination lawsuit in federal district court against the owners and managers of multiple Brooklyn apartment buildings on behalf of the Fair Housing Justice Center (FHJC) and four African American testers. The FHJC conducted a testing investigation which the complaint alleges shows that in 2012 white testers were informed of and shown available apartments for rent, while African American testers were told that there were no apartments available. The plaintiffs are represented by ECBA’s Katherine Rosenfeld and Diane L. Houk.
