NOTICE TO POTENTIAL AGGRIEVED PERSONS
On May 29, 2012, the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York entered a consent decree resolving a lawsuit brought by the United States Department of Justice against certain builders and developers alleging that they failed to include certain accessible features for persons with disabilities required by the Fair Housing Act, 42 U.S.C. §3604(f)(3)(c), in the design and construction of Hudson Crossing.
Under this consent order, a person may be entitled to receive monetary relief if he or she:

HAS BEEN HURT IN ANY WAY BY THE LACK OF ACCESSIBLE
FEATURES AT ANY OF THESE PROPERTIES;
PAID TO HAVE AN APARTMENT AT THESE PROPERTIES MADE MORE
ACCESSIBLE TO PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES; OR
WAS OTHERWISE DISCRIMINATED AGAINST ON THE BASIS OF
DISABILITY AT ANY OF THESE PROPERTIES.
