UNITED STATES OF AMERICA v. NALS Apartment Homes, LLC (D. Utah)
Notice to Potential Aggrieved Persons
On September 28, 2016, the United States District Court for District of Utah entered a Consent Order resolving a lawsuit brought by the United States against NALS Apartment Homes, LLC, et al., (“the Defendants”) concerning alleged housing discrimination at Pinnacle Highland Apartments, located at 7673 S. Highland Drive, Cottonwood Heights, Utah; Cobble Creek Apartments, located at 5251 Cobble Creek Road, Salt Lake City, Utah, Sky Harbor Apartments, located at 1876 North Temple Road, Salt Lake City, and Thornhill Park Apartments, located at 1680 Thornhill Drive, Salt Lake City, Utah (collectively “the Charged Properties”). The lawsuit alleged that the Defendants violated the Fair Housing Act at the Charged Properties by treating tenants with disabilities and prospective tenants with disabilities less favorably than tenants who do not have disabilities and by failing to provide reasonable accommodations as required by the Fair Housing Act for certain tenants with disabilities who sought to live with their assistance animals.
The Consent Order also establishes a Settlement Fund to make payments to compensate persons who are victims of this type of alleged discrimination. You may be entitled to a monetary award from the Settlement Fund if you (1) are an individual with a disability; (2) have lived or sought to live at one of the Charged Properties; and (3) were denied the opportunity to live with your assistance animal, including a restricted breed animal, or received a substantially delayed decision in response to your request to live with your assistance animal, including a restricted breed animal.
If you believe you may be a victim based on the above criteria, or if you have information about someone else whom you believe may qualify, please contact the United States Department of Justice, no later than January 26, 2017, at: 1-800-896-7743 and select menu option 994.
