Navigating Failure-to-Accommodate Housing Discrimination Lawsuits
Created on October 01, 2021
Discrimination litigation is happening everywhere, every day, across the United States. Did you know that a subset of discrimination litigation, failure-to-accommodate litigation, has nothing to do with discriminatory intent whatsoever? This means that defendants across the country are losing cases, and countless amounts of monetary damages/penalties, because they just don't know the rules of the game. It means that you, a licensed attorney, may even be discriminating against others without knowing it.
This two-hour CLE will teach you how to play the game and then, you can offer invaluable advice and counsel services to your clients whether they be landlords, property managers, HOA-coop-condo boards, tenants, buyers, or sellers.
