On April 15, 2019, the United States filed an amended complaint in United States v. Chad David Ables, d/b/a Pops Cove (W.D. Tenn.). The original HUD election complaint, filed on December 20, 2018, alleged that the defendant violated the Fair Housing Act on the basis of sex by subjecting two female HUD complainants to sexual harassment. The amended complaint adds a pattern or practice and group of persons claim. The case was referred to the Division after the Department of Housing and Urban Development received a complaint, conducted an investigation and issued a charge of discrimination.
