I’m an unabashed fan of the AARP Bulletin. (This is different from being uncritical of some of AARP’s positions.) I learn as much, and sometimes about the same things, as I do reading Consumer Reports. This month (Jan 2007) in the AARP Bulletin their column, The Law, has this question: “Does a retirement community violate federal laws by deciding what kind of living arrangements residents need?” The online edition doesn’t yet have a live link to the story, but it is listed in the table of contents. Apparently there has been a lawsuit filed in California, by the plaintiff, Herriot and AARP, against Channing House in Palo Alto. Another story about this lawsuit is here.
And, they also have a legal services network, which I will add to my growing “How to Find a Lawyer” list I am compiling for my upcoming programs on the subject.
