Corcoran and NYLPI Announce Resolution of a Disability Discrimination LawsuitOctober 25, 2023
In the suit, plaintiff Melanie Rivera-Mora alleged that a Corcoran affiliated agent denied her family admission to an open house. At issue was whether this action was based on the disability of her child who wears leg braces and uses crutches, and whether it violated federal, state, and local fair housing laws. Corcoran denied any wrongdoing, and the court did not make any findings on the claims.
NYLPI and the law firm of Chaffetz Lindsey, which handled the matter on a pro bono basis, praised the resolution as a win-win for the disability community and for one of the most prominent New York City real estate brokers; Corcoran affiliated agents will receive additional training in disability laws and people with disabilities will enjoy equitable access to housing.
