The United States Justice Department filed a sexual harassment lawsuit Monday against Randy Hames.

Cullman Attorney Hames is the owner of a Cullman rental property organization – Hames Marina, LLC.

The suit names Randy Hames and his rental property company, Hames Marina, LLC as defendants. The documents allege his actions violated the Fair Housing Act.

Filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Alabama, the complaint alleges that Hames sexually harassed numerous women who lived on his rental property since 2011. The suit claims Hames:

a. demanded or pressured female tenants to engage in sexual acts with him in exchange for rent or prevent eviction,

b. evicted female tenants when they refused his advances,

c. stalked female attendants and entering their residences without permission,

d. made unwelcome sexual comments and advances.

The testimony of three women who lived on Hames Marina, LLC properties were cited in the complaint. The alleged behaviors in the lawsuit occurred in 2011, November 2017 and December 2017.

U.S. Attorney Jay E. Town is involved in the case:

“The alleged behavior of Randy Hames is abhorrent and repulsive. We will not let women, or any person, in our district, be threatened, harassed or retaliated against by landlords.

 

The Fair Housing Act is an extraordinary tool that allows the Department of Justice to protect all female tenants from egregious misconduct, like sexual harassment, and we will continue to enforce all violations of it strongly.”

The federal Fair Housing Act prohibits discrimination in housing based on race, color, religion, national origin, sex, disability, and familial status.
