Justice Department settles lawsuit against Lee Enterprises

A year ago, the Justice Department filed suit against the Elko Daily Free Press and Lee Enterprises for publishing an ad that discriminated against families with children in 2008. That ad was a violation of the Fair Housing Act. Under the settlement, which must now be approved by the U.S. District Court for the District of Nevada, Lee will screen discriminatory housing advertisements, will post notices informing readers of fair housing laws and monetarily compensate Silver State Fair Housing Council.
