On February 8, 2006, the Court entered the Consent Decree in United States v. Grand Canyon Enterprises, Inc., et al. (D. Nev.). The complaint, filed on February 7, 2005, alleged the defendants discriminated on the basis of race and disability they refused to rent an apartment to the complainants in violation of the Fair Housing Act. The complainants intervened in the complaint and had private legal counsel. The consent decree requires the defendants to pay the three complainants $40,000, inclusive of attorney's fees, and also contains injunctive relief.
The case was referred to the Division after the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) received a complaint, conducted an investigation, and issued a charge of discrimination.
