Nixon Obtain Dismissal

Faith Nixon of our Mobile (AL) office successfully defended her client in federal court against claims of violations of the Fair Housing Act and retaliation. The Plaintiff claimed that he assisted his friend in requesting accommodations under the Fair Housing Act to use a service dog on the property, but the association and Board discriminated and retaliated against him for assisting his friend. Faith filed a motion to dismiss the complaint asserting that the Plaintiff failed to identify discriminatory conduct on the part of her client or a causal link between the Plaintiff’s protected activities and any conduct on the part of her client.  The court agreed and dismissed the Fair Housing Act and retaliation claims with prejudice.

Great Results!
