Michael Gunn, left, of Cincinnati holds a picture of a sign that his landlord, Jamie Hein, posted on the entrance of the apartment swimming pool as Elizabeth Brown, executive director of Housing Opportunities Made Equal, looks on during a hearing by the Ohio Civil Right Commission in Columbus, Ohio, Thursday, Jan. 12, 2012. The commission upheld its finding that Gunn’s African-American daughter’s civil rights were violated when Hein banned her from swimming in the pool, citing that chemicals in the girl’s hair would make the pool cloudy. Neither Hein nor her attorney appeared at the hearing.
