On March 7, 2002, a local Fair Housing Council and tenants sued the owners and managers of an apartment complex under the Fair Housing Act in the United States District Court for the District of Colorado, after some tenants were evicted due to the behavior of their children.

On September 16, 2002, Plaintiffs filed an Amended Complaint, alleging that the defendants' curfew policy for individuals under age 18 constituted discrimination based on familial status in violation of the Federal Fair Housing Act, 42 U.S.C.§ 3601 et seq. The plaintiffs sought declaratory, injunctive and monetary relief.

>

On May 27, 2003, in an unpublished order, the Court denied the defendants motion for summary judgment and granted in part and denied in part the plaintiffs' motion for partial summary judgment as to liability. On October 24, 2003, the plaintiffs accepted the defendants' offers to settle, although the settlement agreement is not publicly available. On November 24, 2003, the court dismissed the case by stipulation.
