Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling agreed to settle a discrimination lawsuit for $2.7 million, amid allegations that he allegedly chose not to rent the apartments he owns to Hispanics and African Americans with children.
Sterling, a real estate giant, owns and manages 119 apartment buildings with 5,000 units, according to the
"Los Angeles Times."
His Beverly Hills Properties was accused of favoring Koreans over Hispanics and African Americans because Koreans allegedly "complain" less, reports the LA Weekly.
The settlement is no admission of guilt, but merely a "a compromise of disputed claims" the Times reports.
A federal judge must still approve the agreement. It would be the largest settlement ever in a rental housing discrimination case.
