Publisher Description

Boston Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley has filed a lawsuit against a Boston-area real estate firm for allegedly using discriminatory advertisements on the website Craigslist.com, according to Legal Newsline. Eastern Property Management Group stands accused of posting four separate ads on the listing site that were allegedly discriminatory toward families with young children or those receiving Section 8 assistance. The ad said that an apartment being advertised may "have lead paint so if you have young children under 6 years old or are on Section 8 this will not work for you," according to Coakley's office. The Attorney General's office claims this constitutes discrimination -- landlords can't dissuade potential tenants from pursuing an apartment based on race, religion, gender, familial status, national origin, disability or because the person is a recipient of public assistance, according to federal law.
