Honolulu, HI et al.

Washington, DC: The US Department of Housing and Urban Development's referral to the Justice Department brought about a lawsuit filed in the US District Court for the District of Hawaii, on defendants the City and County of Honolulu, Mecon Hawaii Limited, Yamasato, Fujiwara, Higa & Associates Inc., Hawaii Affordable Properties Inc., and R.M. Towill Corp. The Justice Department today reached a partial settlement with the owner, builder, architect, and civil engineer of the West Loch Village, a 150-unit apartment complex in Ewa Beach, HI, partially resolving allegations of disability discrimination in the design and construction of the complex. Under the partial settlement, the defendants will pay all costs related to making the apartment complex accessible to persons with disabilities. The defendants must also establish a $75,000 fund, which will be used to compensate individuals harmed by the inaccessible housing. (Jan-25-07) [EARTH TIMES: HAWAII HOUSING]
