How can the prospective tenant prove that the landlord has illegally discriminated?
The prospective tenant has the burden of proving that the landlord's conduct was discriminatory. The person can establish a case against the landlord by proving four things: that the plaintiff is a member of a protected group; that the plaintiff applied for and was qualified to rent a certain property; that the plaintiff was rejected by the landlord; and that the property remained unrented thereafter.
