In a victory for a handicap man from the Bronx, a New York judge cited Co-op City for discriminating against wheelchair-bound residents, NY Daily News reported Thursday.
For the second time in less than a year, John Rose prevailed against the management of the sprawling building complex in North Bronx.
State Supreme Court Justice Mary Ann Brigantti-Hughes upheld a November ruling by the New York City Commission on Human Rights.
Riverbay argued it obeyed federal law when it made the side doors of Rose’s building accessible. But Brigantti-Hughes sided with the commission, finding that Riverbay failed to offer Rose an “unsegregated accommodation,” as required by city law.
