LA CROSSE, WI (WTAQ) - The owner and manager of an apartment complex in La Crosse have agreed to pay over $57,000 to settle a federal discrimination suit.

The U.S. Justice Department said the manager of Geneva Terrace told prospective black renters that apartments were not available, while telling white renters that they were available.

Justice officials said the defendants will pay $47,500 to a black couple who was turned away for an apartment, even though the building had signs advertising vacancies.

The Geneva Terrace owner and manager must also pay a civil penalty of $10,000.
