Kentucky human rights commission resolves three discrimination complaints

The Kentucky Commission on Human Rights board ruled Thursday on three discrimination complaints, including one from Bourbon County.

The commission approved three conciliation agreements.

In the agreement from Paris, Whitney Richardson vs. Winterwood Inc., Hopewell Apartments and Lisa Carkin, property manager, Richardson complained to the commission in late 2013 that she was discriminated against by her landlords based on race.

Carkin was later dropped from the complaint because she was no longer an employee of the company. Winterwood Inc. and Hopewell agreed to pay a $4,000 settlement with Richardson, to undergo fair housing law compliance training, and to submit to fair housing law compliance monitoring by the commission for three years.

A Murray case in which a woman claimed she was denied a medically necessary emotional support animal in her home was settled. Also, a Louisville case in which a resident had requested a designated disability parking space from a condominium association was settled: The space was provided, the parking policy is to be revised.
