Said Hellmuth: “We dispute that the association, Gassen or their manager [Brown] discriminated against anyone.”

The suit, which was initiated after Gustafson complained about the complex to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, also claims that the management failed to adequately distribute the rules about children’s activities to its residents. It seeks a court order prohibiting future discrimination, monetary damages and a civil penalty.

Gassen and the homeowners association recently settled another alleged discrimination case involving children.

In that case brought by HUD officials last year, the condo association and management were accused of maintaining a policy that prohibited families with children younger than 18 from living in the Greenbriar Village III building.
