- The Justice Department reached a settlement with a Hawaii developer and others who were accused of not designing and building five multifamily housing complexes with the required accessible features.
- This violates the Fair Housing Act, which is a law that ensures housing is accessible to everyone.
- The agreement requires the companies to pay a fine and make changes to their properties, like adding ramps, accessible parking, and making apartments easier for people with disabilities to enter and use.
- This agreement is meant to make sure that everyone has equal access to housing in these apartment complexes.
