Tenants have brought a sexual harassment suit against the housing authority in Baltimore reports the Baltimore Sun, More Women Join Suit Against Baltimore Public Housing over Alleged Sexual Harassment. The gist of the suit is that maintenance people employed by the housing authority demanded sexual favors as a condition of performing needed repairs on their rental units; one woman who refused to give in went without water for two years reportedly.
This kind of sexual harassment suit is unusual. It appears indistinguishable from a suit I filed in Fayette Circuit Court back in the mid-1990's, Wallace v. Cherokee Equity Corporation. The Kentucky Civil Rights Act prohibits, among other things, this type of sexual harassment as a term of housing.
