JACKSON, Miss. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - A federal judge in Jackson, Miss., has approved a settlement of the Justice Department's lawsuit against the original owners and developers of nine multifamily housing complexes located in Mississippi, Louisiana and Tennessee.

The lawsuit alleged that the defendants failed to include accessible features at the properties.

The defendants were The Bryan Company, Bryan Construction Company Inc., Steve Bryan, Mid-South Houston Partners, Mid-South Development LLC aka MSD LLC, The Vineyards Apartments LLC, Windsor Lake Apartment LP and Cypress Lake Development LLC.

The settlement requires extensive renovations at 800 apartments and nine leasing offices to meet Federal Housing Act requirements.

Last May, as part of the same lawsuit, a settlement resolved the DOJ's claims against nine architects and civil engineers involved with the properties. The defendants paid $865,000 to make property accessible.
