Case Summaries 2012-15
The Minnesota Department of Human Rights Case Summaries in Enforcement report spans four years and myriad discrimination charges including age, race, disability, national origin, gender, pregnancy, religion, sexual orientation and reprisal.
These cases represent a portion of the approximately 2,400 cases the Department investigated from 2011 to 2015. The cases include well-publicized cases such as the wedding venue that denied service to a same-sex couple and the hearing-impaired female that sought a loan modification and allegedly was refused a reasonable accommodation request to solely communicate with her by email. The cases also give a glimpse into the broad range of discrimination complaints filed with the Department.
