Fair Housing Center Files Suit Against Landlord Over Blatant Racial Housing Discrimination

Posted on 17. Dec, 2010 by

On December 17, 2010, the Greater New Orleans Fair Housing Action Center (GNOFHAC) filed suit against the Bouchon Family Limited Partnership and Betty Bouchon.  The lawsuit stems from two unrelated complaints of discrimination by housing consumers.  Both complained that Ms. Bouchon was using race to discriminate against renters at a sixteen (16) unit housing complex located at 4905 and 4919 Canal Street, in New Orleans, LA.  Over the course of a year, GNOFHAC tested the complex for discrimination.  GNOFHAC mystery shoppers attempted to rent units at the complex.  During the process, the mystery shoppers documented blatant discrimination by Ms. Bouchon.
