United States v. Miyamoto (D. Wy.)


On March 29, 2022, the Court entered a consent order in United States v. Karen and Daniel Miyamoto (D. Wy.), resolving allegations that Defendants, the owners of rental housing in Laramie, Wyoming, discriminated on the basis of disability by refusing to grant a reasonable accommodation to their no pets policy to allow a potential tenant with a disability to rent a unit with her assistance animal.  The consent order requires training on the Fair Housing Act, adoption of a compliant reasonable accommodation policy, reporting, and $7,000 in monetary damages for the complainant.  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.
