This site contains information on 3 recent cases in U.S. District Courts. The pattern in these and other cases I read are for Concord to get sued, initally reply to the suit and then settle the case, always requiring that the cases have a Confidential Settlement Agreement thus keeping the amount of settlement away from the public.

Fair Housing Continuum, Inc v. Concord Management, Ltd
Fair Housing sued and alleged that Concord Management, Ltd. purposely misrepresented that the apartments were a '55 and over' community when they knew that it did not comply with the Housing For Older Persons Act of 1995 and as a result Concord discriminated against families with children who wanted to live at Spring Lake Cove.
Testers found that those who stated they had children were quoted higher rents and deposits than those testers who said they were 55+ and did not have children.
