United States v. Hinesville Housing Authority, et al. (S.D. Ga.)
On September 29, 2023, the United States filed an “election” complaint in United States v. Hinesville Housing Authority, et al. (S.D. Ga.). The complaint alleges that the defendants violated the Fair Housing Act by evicting the complainant in retaliation for making fair housing complaints against the defendants. Hineshouse Property Management and Maintenance Service, Inc., Hinesville Leased Housing Corporation, and Melanie Thompson 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.
