Krabbe drops her housing discrimination claim against Hampton

Local residential landlord Belen Krabbe has dropped her housing discrimination claim that she filed against the city of Hampton, saying she saw no point in continuing the claim with the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development.

     "It wasn't worth it to me anymore,"Krabbe said. "I just said, 'No more.' I never wanted any money, it was about the situation."

     Krabbe originally filed the claim with the state of Iowa Civil Rights Commission, but that group denied it due to jurisdictional and funding issues and then referred it to the federal level and HUD investigators.
