Women who filed a federal lawsuit against the Baltimore housing authority will settle for an amount that is the largest reached in a fair housing lawsuit after a "sex-for-repairs" scheme was outlined in their sworn statements.

The amount to be given to the women -- between $6 million and $7.95 million -- will be determined depending on if the lawsuit is allowed class action status, and how many women ultimately come forward to join the claim.
That process could take another six moths, attorney's for the women said. So far, 19 women have come forward alleging that maintenance workers at three public housing properties demanded sexual favors in exchange for repairs.

"It's a historic effort on behalf of these plaintiff's for coming forward, it's a historic effort for communities united for bringing attention to this problem," said Carey Hansel, co-counsel for the plaintiff's.
