F. Willis Caruso, co-executive director of the Fair Housing Legal Support Center, featured:
A federal judge today approved a settlement in two lawsuits accusing a condominium association of violating the Fair Housing Act by repeatedly removing parchments bearing Torah verses from the doorposts of Jewish residents.
Following a brief hearing, U.S. District Judge Virginia M. Kendall entered a consent decree ending a longrunning legal battle that twice went before the federal appeals court based in Chicago.
Kendall entered the decree the day after the parties in the consolidated suits had been set to go to trial.
The decree bars the Shoreline Towers Condominium Association on Chicago’s North Side and its president from retaliating against the residents who sued the association or from interfering with the sale or lease of any Shoreline unit in which those residents have an interest.
