Winstar, Inc., one of the biggest property managers in Los Angeles County, increased the rent by 63% for 7 of 8 units at a building in unincorporated East Los Angeles. Some of the tenants refused to accept the increase, claiming that it was unreasonable in light of the rental market in the surrounding neighborhood. The tenants filed a complaint in federal court, alleging that the increase had a disparate impact on tenants who immigrated to the United States from Latin America.
