Lexington neighborhood association sued in playhouse dispute

Posted: Updated:

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- Federal officials are accusing a Kentucky neighborhood association of discriminating and retaliating against a family that built a therapeutic playhouse for their son who has cerebral palsy.

The Lexington Herald-Leader reports the Justice Department sued the Andover Forest Homeowners Association in Lexington and EMG Management Services, which is hired by the homeowners association to manage the neighborhood.

The lawsuit claims the defendants violated the federal Fair Housing Act by failing to make reasonable accommodations for George and Tiffiney Veloudis and their toddler son.

Nathan Billings, a lawyer for the homeowners association, says his client hasn't seen the lawsuit. But Billings says they are confident the complaint will be dismissed once a judge hears the facts.

Trip Redford, a lawyer for EMG, says his client has not seen the complaint and declined comment.
