According the National Collation Against Domestic Violence (2015), an average of twenty people every minute are physically abused by an intimate partner. This is nearly 10 million abuse cases every year in the United States. Because of statics like these, many states have taken a tough stance against domestic violence by passing laws that require law enforcement officers to take action by making arrests.

Ms. Miner made all decisions, with respect to Plaintiff’s leasing agreement, for legitimate, non-discriminatory reasons. Plaintiff has been a problematic tenant throughout her tenancy with Ms. Miner. Several noise complaints and property damage have been the underlining force in denying Plaintiff’s lease renewal, not her status as a domestic violence victim.
