Kansas City v. Yarco Co., No. 09-3677
Challenge to Allegedly Discriminatory Curfew
In Kansas City v. Yarco Co., No. 09-3677, an action by a city under federal, state, and local law, claiming that defendant maintained a discriminatory curfew at an apartment complex, the court vacated judgment on the pleadings for defendant where, given the absence of standing on plaintiff's Federal Housing Act claim, the state and local claims could not proceed in federal court.
As the court wrote: "The City of Kansas City, Missouri, sued Yarco Company, Inc., and Churchill Properties, L.P. (together "Yarco"), under federal, state, and local law, claiming that
Yarco maintained a discriminatory curfew at an apartment complex. The district court
granted judgment on the pleadings to Yarco. This court vacates and remands."
