The owner of Brookside Mobile Manor in Chadwicks has agreed to a settlement in a discrimination case with a former resident.

The lawsuit was filed by CNY fair housing on behalf of the resident who was recommended by her doctor to keep her chihuahua as an emotional support animal to minimize stress and depression cause by multiple surgeries.

The park owner Erik Cusworth declined her written request and attempted to evict her.

The resident moved out of the park after alleged harassment by the owner but continued to make payments on the mobile home.

Under the settlement, the owner and management company agreed to pay the resident $9,500 and comply with all State and Federal Fair Housing laws.

“Landlords and property managers should not interfere with the treatment a doctor recommends for his or her patient,” said Executive Director at CNY Fair Housing Sally Santangelo. “Emotional support or assistance animals can provide people with disabilities the stability and help they need to function on a daily basis. We will continue to enforce our Federal Fair Housing laws, especially for those who may not always be able to help themselves.”
