(Phoenix, Ariz. – April 19, 2006) Attorney General Terry Goddard today announced a settlement with the Sunland Village East Homeowners Association in Mesa. The agreement settles allegations that the HOA violated Arizona’s Fair Housing Act by denying access to community rooms based on homeowners’ religious affiliation.
According to court documents, over the last 12 years the LDS Family Home Evening Group met once a month for social purposes. The group is made up of residents within the HOA. It did not pay any fees during this time.
