    Marital status is protected under the legislation so its directly prohibited to discriminate on that basis. She had a cut and dry case. Indeed it is interesting the agent got sued but I suppose its no defence to claim you carried out QN illegal act for someone else.

    But of course.
    And her 'forever home' too.

    Now that she has her new home with her daughter, Erica joked to Ray D'Arcy: "There's no moving me now!

    I'm sure the next person on the list took it, probably because it wasn't on the other side of the city from her family and her child's school.
    The problem you and your ilk have with the likes of Erica Flemming and Maurice McCabe etc, is that they expose the flaws in yor government's state agencies.
    Whistleblowers are to be smeared and attacked at any cost, in order to protect the princesses of the PS/CS who are incapable of doing the job we pay them to do in a correct manner.

    I think it would fall foul of the Equal Status Act under 'family status'.

    FFS, I don't think Erica Flemming is in the same league as Maurice McCabe.

    I wonder when will single people sue other people in the courts because they were rejected by a member of the opposite sex?

    He rejected me because he didn't consider me attractive enough or that I was too fat or too small or that I was a member of the travelling community or that I was black etc or that I came from the wrong side of the city.

    Even better will a Heterosexual person be sued for rejecting the advances of a Homosexual person? They hate gays etc.

    In the case mentioned, if there is a law that prevents discrimination against a single person with a child in regard to renting a house, why isn't the fine the rental management company has to pay (€3000) paid to the state? Why is it given to the mother?

    I didn't say she was.
    She is a whistleblower who exposes the madness of the way the state is attempting to provide social housing here though.
    Contrarian as usual, eh?
