Ohio landlords to pay $850,000 in housing discrimination case

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 08/26/2014 - 04:19
By Kim Palmer CLEVELAND (Reuters) - An Ohio couple who own apartment buildings agreed to pay $850,000 to settle complaints they discriminated against both African-American renters and families with children, a spokesman for the United States Attorney's Office said Monday. John and Mary Ruth, owners of three apartment complexes located in Massillon, 20 miles south of Akron, agreed to pay $650,000 in damages and legal fees to multiple plaintiffs in the lawsuit filed by the Ohio Civil Rights Commission, Stark County, former residents and employees.   The Ruths will also pay a $25,000 fine to the government and $175,000 in damages to 11 former residents and employees after agreeing to a consent order that resolves the lawsuit without trial and without the defendant admitting guilt in the matter, according to U.S. The federal lawsuit filed in 2011 claims that 10 of the couple's former employees testified that they were instructed to violate the Fair Housing Act (FHA) by allowing no more than one third of all apartment units be rented to African-Americans.   The Ruths told managers, "that African-American tenants were undesirable and decreased the value of the complexes" and that families with children were also not desirable and "should be restricted to basement or first floor units," according to court documents.   Former employees interviewed for the lawsuit said that existing tenants were given "discriminatory treatment in an effort to induce them to move out" and managers were pressured to manufacture grounds to evict them or be fired.   "It is a sad fact that decades after the passage of the Fair Housing Act, many people still face unlawful discrimination when looking for housing," said Molly Moran, Acting Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Rights Division.

Man arrested for shooting dogs suspected in three L.A. homicides

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 08/26/2014 - 04:11
By Daina Beth Solomon LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - A 34-year-old man who was arrested after shooting two dogs over the weekend is also considered a suspect in three homicides committed within an hour across Los Angeles' sprawling San Fernando Valley, police said on Monday. Alexander Hernandez of Sylmar was detained on animal cruelty charges after shooting two dogs to death on Saturday, Los Angeles Police spokeswoman Liliana Preciado said.    Hernandez was also a suspect in the fatal shootings of a man in his twenties or thirties, a woman about 50 years old, and a woman in her early twenties whose two family members were also wounded, Preciado said. Preciado said Hernandez was linked to the three killings because it appeared the same shotgun involved in the murders was used to shoot the dogs.   The suspect may have fired at the victims from a tan or gold SUV with tinted windows driving through a suburb outside of Los Angeles in the pre-dawn hours.    Los Angeles Police captain William Hayes told reporters at a press conference on Sunday evening that Hernandez barricaded himself in his home for an hour on Sunday night, after which a police SWAT team took him into custody.   “You have three grievous incidents, you have horrendous incidents,” Hayes said at the briefing outside Hernandez’s home.

Lawyers for Texas Governor Perry file motion to dismiss charges

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 08/26/2014 - 03:46

Texas Governor Rick Perry, a possible Republican candidate for the 2016 presidential race waits to speak at a "NH GOP Victory Rally" in StrathamBy Jon Herskovitz AUSTIN Texas (Reuters) - Attorneys for Texas Governor Rick Perry filed a motion on Monday to dismiss two felony charges of abusing his power, saying it is unjust to prosecute the leader of the state over a political dispute by trying to criminalize a veto. Perry, a possible candidate in the 2016 Republican presidential race, was indicted earlier this month for trying to use the veto to force the resignation of a prosecutor in Travis County, a Democratic stronghold in the Republican-dominated state. "Subjecting any sitting governor to a criminal prosecution and injecting the judiciary into a political dispute would be an unprecedented assault on this cherished separation of powers," the motion filed in a Travis County district court said. Perry, the longest-serving governor in the state's history, became the target of an ethics investigation last year after he vetoed $7.5 million in funding for the state public integrity unit run from the Travis County district attorney's office.
