Virginia man passed over for house, though perfect for 'discriminated against' role

by Jeremy Hooper

The Alexandria Human Rights Commission has decided that Long and Foster Realtors of McLean, VA, discriminated against a gay man when they sold a home to a married heterosexual couple instead of his unmarried self (despite his higher bid). The man, Lawrence Cummings (teehee...Lawrence), had accused the realtors of discrimination on the basis of both sexual orientation and marital status, though no specification was made as to with which claim(s) the commission ultimately agreed.

As for the house, we do hear that all parties seem to agree that it's far less FABULOUS than it would have been under Cummings's ownership.
