United States v. Aqua 388 Community Association, et al. (C.D. Cal.)
On April 3, 2023, the United States Attorney’s Office filed an “election” complaint in United States v. Aqua 388 Community Association, et al. (C.D. Cal.). The complaint alleges that the defendants discriminated on the basis of disability in violation of the Fair Housing Act (FHA) by refusing to provide the complainant, who has paraplegia, a reserved accessible parking space. FirstService Residential California, LLC, Rebecca Hawkins, Christopher Harrington, and Aqua Maintenance Corp. are also named as defendants in the case. The case was referred to the Division after the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) received a complaint, conducted an investigation, and issued a charge of discrimination.
