Interesting, long article in the

Interesting, long article in the LAT about an LA landlord who was sued because he used the word "Korean" in the names of his residential buildings (e.g., "Korean World Towers"). The court determined the building names sent a message that non-Koreans were not welcome as tenants, and therefore must be changed.

Other issues in the case: (1) the landlord is reported to have explicitly told his managers not to rent to blacks and Latinos, who he said "smell", "attract vermin" and are lazy; (2) the landlord is Donald Sterling, the owner of the NBA's Los Angeles Clippers.
