Abstract

The Howard Brown Health Center, the largest gay and lesbian health provider in the Midwest, has settled a suit it filed against Hyde Park Bank and Aegis Properties Corp. The center claimed that its repeated attempts to lease space in the Hyde Park Bank building were allegedly refused because the Center's services were "problematic" and could drive away present and future tenants. Aegis Properties Corp., the bank's property management, denies the discrimination charge and states the health center never submitted an application to rent in the building. The health center will receive an undisclosed sum as a result of the settlement.
