HIV-Positive Man and Assisted Living Facility Settle Suit
An HIV-positive retired university provost and former minister has settled his lawsuit against an assisted living facility in Arkansas that ejected him, according to a statement from Lambda Legal, which represented him. The Reverend Robert Franke was kicked out from Fox Ridge one day after moving in when officials realized his HIV status. Franke sued under the Fair Housing Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act and other similar state laws. The parties reached a settlement before the case went to trial.
