§ 10039. Priority Intake.
(a) The following may be given priority for the purpose of scheduling an intake appointment for a housing discrimination complaint:
(1) a person whose statute of limitations would run in thirty (30) days or less;
(2) a person alleging a failure to rent where the desired unit is still available;
(3) a person facing an impending and allegedly discriminatory eviction where action by the department may delay the eviction;
(4) a person who is terminally ill;
(5) a homeless person or a person at risk of institutionalization;
(6) a person complaining about conduct that, if proven, would constitute a violation of the Ralph Civil Rights Act; and/or
(7) any other person whose situation warrants a priority intake in the department's discretion.
(b) A person who seeks to file a complaint for investigation with the department that alleges retaliation occurring within one-hundred-eighty (180) days of the person's filing a prior complaint of discrimination with the department, or within one-hundred-eighty (180) days of that person's participation in an investigation conducted by the department, may be given priority.
(c) The department may file a complaint for investigation without first obtaining the complainant's verification of the complaint, when doing so is necessary to avoid missing the statute of limitations for filing with the department. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the department shall obtain verification of the complaint before it is served.
