The Fair Housing Council joined Cynthia and Howard Cole as a plaintiff in the action. When the Cole's requested a reasonable accommodation due to her documented disability L'Abri Property Management refused to waive their no pet policy telling Mrs. Cole, in a letter, that the companion animal prescribed by 3 separate doctors was not necessary to her treatment. After their request was denied, the Cole's were served a 3-day notice to perform covenant or quit, requiring them to remove the companion animal or move out. This action caused Cynthia's health condition to deteriorate so badly she had to be hospitalized for over two weeks.
