While Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino recently celebrated HUD’s decision to withdraw its claims of exclusionary housing against minorities in the county, public records show that Fair Housing Justice Center filed a federal lawsuit this week, claiming that the town of Bedford is guilty of just that. The suit alleges that the city and its development arm excludes African-Americans from middle-income housing.
