The state civil rights commission found that a maintenance worker at the apartment complex harassed two men living there.
A Council Bluffs jury has awarded a gay couple $147,000 in their discrimination lawsuit.
The Iowa Civil Rights Commission had sued an apartment management company, New Life Multi-Family Management LLC, on behalf of Charles Anderson and Brandon Morehead. The commission says the jury last week found in favor of the couple.
The commission says a maintenance technician employed by New Life Multi-Family had harassed Anderson and Morehead, who shared a one-bedroom in a complex managed by the company. The commission also says the technician continued to deride the men with epithets even after they complained to the apartment complex manager.
The lawsuit says the company didn't correct the technician's behavior, which was discriminatory against Anderson and Morehead, based on their sexual orientation.
