A federal discrimination lawsuit has been filed against an apartment complex in the Fort Worth, Texas area alleging employees routinely discriminated against South Asians and Middle Easterners, reports the Star Telegram.
Employees of the Stonebridge at Bear Creek apartments in Eules are accused of calling Middle Easterners and South Asians “curry people” and were told to only rent units to them in a segregated building.
“We absolutely dispute the allegations and are going to vigorously defend the case in court,” said Christopher Howe, an attorney for the defendants.
The allegations come from former employees.
“I was told that no one else wanted to live by these people. That they were dirty and they cooked with curry,” Daneisha Davis said.
