Tonca Watters and Terence Watters v Bridgewater Reserve Owners Association, Kathryn Mamaril and Edward Mamaril
19-3499
Appeal from the United States District Court for the Southern District of Indiana, Division of Indianapolis. Magistrate Judge Matthew P. Brookman.
Civil. Sets aside the grant of summary judgment to Kathryn and Edward Mamaril on Tonca and Terence Watters’ claims of discrimination under the Fair Housing Act and 42 USC § 1982, but affirms summary judgment for the association of owners at Bridgewater Reserve. Finds the Watters presented enough evidence to support their claims against the Mamrils. Also finds that the Watters provide no evidence directly linking the Mamarils’ actions to the HOA as a whole, nor provide any evidence to support their non-accommodation claim. Referrals for continuation of the procedure. Judge Amy St. Eve dissents in part with a separate opinion.
