Akron: Condo Sued Over Pool Age Limit

AKRON, Ohio (AP) - An Akron condo association is being sued over its policy barring babies and toddlers from the swimming pool.

The civil rights lawsuit brought by the mother of a one-year-old and a fair housing group claims the Seven Stories East Condominiums is discriminating against young children because of fears they'll relieve themselves in the water.

The Fair Housing Advocates Association says a four-year-old or even an elderly person could do the same.

The mother, Suzanne Malcom, says she was upset in mid-June when she was told to keep her son Lucas out of the pool. She says he was wearing a swim diaper and is potty trained.

A woman answering the phone at the condo association declined to comment.
