The New York Times has a full article this morning on the U.S. anti-discrimination case against East River Housing on behalf of three cooperators who have been denied accommodation for pets even after presenting doctors’ notes supporting the dogs’ therapeutic benefit.
The case is complicated, involving three different cooperators with different circumstances. All three have lost cases in housing court, but are now being championed by the U.S. Attorney, who believes that co-op policy does not make room for people with health disabilities.
Recently, this and other lawsuits against dog owners in the coop were singled out by the board of directors as a factor leading them to consider a rise in monthly maintenance fees.
