Oh wow. I'm not sure what to think about this. On one hand, she can't keep breeding and stay in the same size apartment especially if fire regulations only allow so many people. But then again, we're not completely an Orwellian state. Or are we?

Do I really look like Maury Povich or Jerry Springer?  Did the landlord require this of each of the prospective tenants? What was Mr Smith's reaction?

I had to read it three times. This is an "affordable housing complex" according to the story she has three children in a one bedroom apartment. In renewing her lease she does not disclose boyfriend or baby #4. Landlord uses some kooky scheme to prove the baby will also be a resident in 4 months thus making the unit too small.  What is Florida law for the number of occupants and who determines this ruling? I bet she wins in court as asking for an ultrasound violates privacy HIPPA laws. I bet the landlord failed to ask EVERYONE for in womb images- and how was the Dr. landlord going to read and medically interpret the ultrasound? Kooky

Perhaps they need to know how many individuals will be occupying the property, but property managers need to be consistent in what they ask of applicants.

Fake news? Sounds like a he-said, she-said story and I'm curious what grounds she has to stand on without his bizarre request having been in writing? 

Of course, tenants are tough to beat in court - I actually feel for the landlord - it just seems too far fetched to be the truth. Just my gut, Fred.

The tenant's first problem is "he said"... well it's not in writing. Sounds like there's something else missing from this story. It IS south Florida. But I find it hard to believe that she wouldn't go after him for discrimination if that were the case. I evicted a hoarder from my property, but only after she moved 7 screeching parrots into my  home. And then she hired a crazy lawer who attempted to reverse the blame by saying I was constructively evicting her... NOT BUYING THIS STORY AT ALL.

I don't know about being able to tell if someone is pregnant by four months.  My friend is built like this woman and I couldn't tell she was pregnant until about six months....even then it was not super noticeable.

Clearly, this man is in violation of Fair Housing.  And what an ultrasound has to do with anything is beyond me.  Failure to disclose the soon to be appearance of another tenant would be an issue though depending on local zoning.

Is it just me, or do news stories seem to aim to get people outraged with ridiculous fact these days?
