Non-maintained intercom apt 9 – failure to investigate, enforce, * and abate a nuisance. Failure to grant rent reimbursement and rent reduction. Conspiracy to deny claimant maintenance of intercom, based on plaintiff’s Race, Black, and because claimant filed discrimination complaints against the city government and public officials.

The DFEH maintains they want to ask me questions. How many …. damn questions do I need to answer before the DFEH complies with the California Constitution prohibiting racial discrimination?

Retaliation because I complained and made code enforcement, discrimination, and maintenance complaints.  California Civil Code §1942.5 (Retaliation)

HUD regulations state “a facially-neutral policy or practice that has a discriminatory effect violates the Act if it is not supported by a legally sufficient justification”.

The statements …. attributed to the owner [by the DFEH in unverified documents] which he has not denied, are not supported by a legally sufficient justification [and] are discrimination as defined under these sections of GC 12927, as they apply to the owner’s et al. denial of apartment with working intercom and denial of apartment with tandem parking stall:

Government Code 12927

GC 12927.  As used in this part in connection with housing

accommodations, unless a different meaning clearly appears from the

context:

(c) (1) “Discrimination” includes:

refusal to sell, rent, or lease housing accommodations;

includes refusal to negotiate for the sale, rental, or lease of housing accommodations;

includes representation that a housing accommodation is not available for inspection, sale, or rental when that housing accommodation is in fact so available;

includes any other denial or withholding of housing accommodations;

includes provision of inferior terms, conditions, privileges, facilities, or services in connection with those housing accommodations;

includes harassment in connection with those housing accommodations;

includes the provision of segregated or separated housing accommodations;

 

   (d) “Housing accommodation” means any building, structure, or

portion thereof that is occupied as, or intended for occupancy as, a

residence by one or more families and any vacant land that is offered

for sale or lease for the construction thereon of any building,

structure, or portion thereof intended to be so occupied.

(e) “Owner” includes the lessee, sublessee, assignee, managing

agent, real estate broker or salesperson, or any person having any

legal or equitable right of ownership or possession or the right to

rent or lease housing accommodations, and includes the state and any

of its political subdivisions and any agency thereof. [emphasis added]

42 USC 1983- civil action for deprivation of rights

“Every person who, under color of any statute, ordinance, regulation, custom, or usage, of any State or Territory or the District of Columbia, subjects, or causes to be subjected, any citizen of the United States or other person within the jurisdiction thereof to the deprivation of any rights, privileges, or immunities secured by the Constitution and laws, shall be liable to the party injured in an action at law, suit in equity, or other proper proceeding for redress, except that in any action brought against a judicial officer for an act or omission taken in such officer’s judicial capacity, injunctive relief shall not be granted unless a declaratory decree was violated or declaratory relief was unavailable. For the purposes of this section, any Act of Congress applicable exclusively to the District of Columbia shall be considered to be a statute of the District of Columbia.”
