HUD v. Castillo Condominium, 14-2139

In a case that involves a man, his emotional support dog, and a condominium association's 'no pets' rule, alleging disability discrimination under the Fair Housing Act, 42 U.S.C. sections 3601-3619, the condominium association's petition for judicial review of a final order of the Secretary of the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development is denied and the Secretary's cross-petition for enforcement of his order is granted where substantial evidence supports the Secretary's finding that the Association's refusal to allow the former condo owner to keep an emotional support dog in his condominium unit as a reasonable accommodation for his disability was unlawful.
