    I live in OOB and was sworn at and called names by my neighbor and the landlord every day during the month of May and June 2012. I am a single mom and endured many derogatory comments from both parties.  Complaints to the landlord did nothing as this behavior continued.  I filed with the MHRC.  The landlord did not tell the truth but Ms. Lelli chose to beleive them and she concluded that no reasonable grounds exists…meaning I was not telling the truth.  The only reason this case was found to have reasonable grounds is because someone is black. 
    Seems o me Ms. Lelli is not impartial.
