Josh Gruenberg represented Ms. Doe, an Afro-American mother of five children who was unsuccessfully sued in unlawful detainer by the large apartment complex where she had lived for seven years. The court in denying the unlawful detainer action found the proffered reasons for the eviction unbelievable. Ms. Doe believed the attempted eviction was due to her race.
Attorney Gruenberg sued the attorney, the owners of the complex and the management company who sought to evict Ms. Doe and her five children, claiming the attempted eviction was racially motivated. The case settled shortly after discovery began for $172,000.
