[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.
