Condo blocking Staten Island mom from installing wheelchair lift is violating local law and the federal Fair Housing Amendments Act

Go and read — including the comments, please, since I’m one of the commenters — I had to learn a lot about disability rights law in order to advocate for my late life partner, because she was quadriplegic due to multiple sclerosis the last 10 years of her life — and we lived in a condo apartment. I am shocked at how proudly and openly so many of the commenters hate people with disabilities under the guise of playing by the rules. But it is not the condo association’s rules that govern this situation, it is the Fair Housing Amendments Act and the local human rights law cited by another commenter.

I don’t know what is more jaw-dropping: the condo nazis discriminating the poor child or the ones at the forum defending them because “they should stick to the condo rules or leave”.

BTW, your comment was straight to the point.

It was a combination of room for the dogs and my general unsocial nature that made us retire ‘way out here, three miles past Resume Speed, Texas. I never thought much about the disability rights thing. I mean I always figured everyone should get an even break but it simply wasn’t anything I thought much about. Then Linda Lou broke her leg and the nightmare began.
