Disabled People Under 50 Say Minneapolis|Public Housing Won’t Take Applications

     MINNEAPOLIS (CN) – The Minneapolis Public Housing Authority illegally refuses to accept applications from disabled people younger than 50, and illegally inquires about applicants’ disabilities if they are younger than 50, a class action claims in Federal Court.




     The nine named plaintiffs, identified only by their initials, say the defendant has refused to accept applications from disabled people younger than 50 since Oct. 1, 2007, in violation of state and federal laws. They claim at least 243 disabled people younger than 50 had active applications for public housing when the defendants illegally stopped accepting applications.
     Plaintiffs are represented by Dorinda Wider with The Legal Aid Society of Minneapolis.
