Did the Town of Parsippany Housing Department Force You to Leave Your Home Because You Had a Child? You May Have Been a Victim of Discrimination

Regarding housing dept ordinance.

Did the Town of Parsippany Housing Department force you to leave your home because you had a child? You may have been a victim of discrimination!

There is the federal Fair Housing Act is contained in Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1968. It was amended in 1974 and again in 1978. The Fair Housing Act prohibits housing discrimination against a person who falls in any of the following seven groups. Anyone treated unfairly because of: race, color, religion, national origin, sex, families with children and people with disabilities. These seven groups are considered “protected classes” under the act and its amendments. "Protected classes" mean the categories of discrimination that are covered by the law.

You can file a Housing Discrimination complaint with HUD online here at this link!

If your case goes to an administrative hearing HUD attorneys will litigate the case on your behalf. You may intervene in the case and be represented by your own attorney if you wish. An Administrative Law Judge (ALA) will consider evidence from you and the respondent. If the ALA decides that discrimination occurred, the respondent can be ordered:

To compensate you for actual damages, including humiliation, pain and suffering.
To provide injunctive or other equitable relief, for example, to make the housing available to you.
To pay the Federal Government a civil penalty to vindicate the public interest. The maximum penalties are $16,000 for a first violation and $65,000 for a third violation within seven years.
To pay reasonable attorney's fees and costs.

Remember this is PER family and there are several families both at present and in the past who were affected by this ordinance.
