Association Discriminated Against Blind Homeowner
Facts: A homeowner who served on her community association’s board of directors sued the association for civil rights violations and violations of the Fair Housing Act Amendments (FHAA) and state laws. The homeowner was legally blind and had requested that the board provide her with versions of the documents that other members received, but in a readable format for blind individuals. The board refused to reasonably accommodate her disability. Eventually, the homeowner resigned from the board.
