West Virginia Human Rights Commission, on behalf of Latoya Jones vs. Wincor Properties/Donald Corwin
PA- Jerry Fowler; J- N/A
*Latoya Jones contacted Wincor Properties to rent a two-bedroom apartment. Jones and a friend met with one of the owners, Roberta Corwin, to see the apartment, and Corwin asked if Jones and the person with her would be roommates, the complaint says. Jones advised the second bedroom was for her children, at which time Corwin allegedly told Jones they would not rent to someone with children. Jones and the Human Rights Commission allege Wincor Properties is guilty of discriminatory housing practices because of family status and seek compensation, punitive damages and assessment of civil penalties against Wincor, costs, and attorney fees.
Case number: 13-C-532
