Arlington Park

This is a settlement for the Discrimination lawsuit.

Chicago, IL: (Mar-01-07) A housing discrimination was lawsuit filed in 2005 after the US Department of Housing and Urban Development determined that the "Licensed Worker Restriction" policy at the Arlington Heights racetrack was evidence of discrimination against families under the federal Fair Housing Act. The suburban racetrack improperly barred workers with children from living in air-conditioned dormitories with private bathrooms. In the settlement reached, Arlington Park's owners have agreed to construct new housing units with private bathrooms and air conditioning that will be made available to backstretch workers with families. They will also install air conditioning in existing units and pay $170,000 in fines and penalties. [BELLEVILLE NEWS DEMOCRAT: PARK GENDER DISCRIMINATION]
