Same Sex Couple Says County Stalled Homebuilding

BRECKENRIDGE, Colo. (AP) – A same-sex couple is suing Summit County, claiming they lost a home they were building because of discrimination by county officials.

Jason Rodgers and James Hazel say they were told building permits are only issued to families and they eventually lost their home to foreclosure.

According to the Summit Daily News, county officials say the two men were inexperienced homebuilders and made a mess they couldn’t afford to clean up.
