I agee that the complaintant is an idiot (maybe they have a grudge against this woman and were just messing with her) but the FHC is required to respond to complaints by idiots too.

I am a smalltime landlord so I am well aware of the issues regarding tenants.


HUD was obligated to investigate after the complaint was filed.

They made the decision that it was unwarranted.

What's the problem?

Never have so many politicians, screwed so many Americans...just to make one black person lose his job.

So..... what difference does that make?

Other than the fact that a church goer took exception to it.

Re: Here's a good one ...

I dont get it... does someone have an issue with the suit being dropped? Or am I not reading this right...

She did nothing wrong. She wanted a christian room mate... Is that any different then wanting a male or female room mate?

You may be a landlord, but the woman who posted the ad clearly was not - she's a private citizen and should be legally able to ask for whatever qualifications she wants; color, sex, sexual orientation, financial standing, eye color, shoe size, smell, straight or curly hair, or whatever else - IT'S HER ROOM SHE WANTS TO SHARE... NOT A FLIPPIN' HOTEL!

As far as for following up on complaints... 1) use common sense, 2) if it's filed by a member of the ACLU ignore it, 3) if it violates a person's personal freedom refer to #1. The problem is we have too many people in agencies that have NO COMMON SENSE! They think everything is theirs and if our freedoms impact their power they need to restrict our freedom!

And some people wonder why the American public is so angry! Just the idea that something like this even started makes intelligent, rational people ANGRY!!
Listen you moronic, politically-correct wing-nuts: QUIT WASTING the tax-payers money. The HUD, Mich. Civil Rights Dept., as with most government agencies, as basically inept people who latched onto a government job and are now trying to justify their existence.

"The government that governs least governs best." That is an old quote from one of our founding fathers that should be repeated and repeated as we see all levels of government become more and more intrusive in our lives. Our laws are all flawed as they are merely products of flawed people. Most laws, as written, are like the fair housing law--easily misused by those in authority. Misused enforcement of such laws can have many bad consequences the least of which is the expenditure of time and money by both the governmental body and the accused party. That is time and money that is not available for "real" unfair housing situations. More likely in this case, it was slow at the office and someone needed to create a reason for their being there.

Neither the Fair Housing Act or the Elliot Larsen Civil Rights act would apply here. A person advertising for a "roommate" does not meet the jurisdictional threshold for either statute. That threshold being that the respondent (person advertising for a roommate) owns 4 rental units for the FHAA to apply or 2 rental units for the ELCRA to apply. I do not see how a constitutional argument has any relevance here - the case simply does not meet the jurisdictional requirements.
Maybe I should have said , .................read ALL .......(long pause for effect )of the comments ...........................

Re: Here's a good one ...

So your issue seems to be that they didn't dismiss it quicker?
