Santa Monica has seen a big increase in housing discrimination complaints--seven in the last five months, up from three in the 12 months ending July 2012. The complaints have come largely from tenants with disabilities, who say their landlords have refused to make reasonable accommodations to allow them to stay in their apartments. "The rise in complaints could be because more tenants are aware of their rights thanks to seminars conducted by City Hall," according to the deputy city attorney. [Santa Monica Daily Press]
