CASE ENTRY

Wetzel v. Glen St. Andrew Living Community, LLC

Allegation: Residents of Niles, Ill. assisted living facility retirement home berate, physically assault lesbian resident. She complains to management, who, rather than protect her, build case to evict her. District court: Can’t sue over that. Federal law doesn’t make a landlord liable for tenant-on-tenant harassment. Seventh Circuit: It does. The case should not have been dismissed.
