New York Landlord Hit For $110 Large After Sexual Harassment Complaint

[Buffalo News] A Hamburg landlord has been ordered to pay $110,000 in a housing discrimination case involving sexual harassment aimed at a female tenant.

Gerald D. Meyerhoefer made unwelcomed sexual advances toward the working mother who rented a mobile home partially owned by Meyerhoefer.

The woman, who lived in the mobile home with her teen age son, filed a complaint with Housing Opportunities Made Equal (HOME).

Administrative Law Judge Matthew Menes ordered Meyerhoefer to pay the woman $100,000 in damages for persistent daily sexual harassment aimed at the mother and for the emotional distress it caused her. Meyerhoefer also has to pay $10,000 in punitive damages.

  1. Gerald Meyerhoefer was led to believe, by the plaintiff, that she was interested in him. It was quite a scam and she knew exactly what she was doing. She targeted a lonely old man and made some of her own “advances”. Nothing seems to be said about her relationship with him prior to moving into the mobile home. Hmmmmm.
