Successfully defended a civil rights complaint filed by a tenant alleging that the association failed to accommodate his disability during a waterproofing project. The tenant also alleged that the board was harassing him.

Facts – A tenant within an association alleged that he could not gain access to the building during a waterproofing project and therefore the association failed to grant him an accommodation to his disability. The tenant also claimed that the board was harassing him and threatening him with bodily harm.

Kaman & Cusimano successfully proved that the tenant failed to request an accommodation or advise the association of any disability. Kaman & Cusimano also provided copies of contractor statements showing that the tenant was harassing the contractors and that the board did not engage in any harassment or discrimination.
