Salem, OR -

A Lake Oswego senior living company will pay from $750 to $3,500 or more in restitution to 163 veterans as part of a settlement with the Oregon Department of Justice.

The state said Monday the company, Holiday Retirement, agreed to the payment after the Department of Justice called "alleged unlawful marketing of senior housing to veterans."

The Oregonian reported the announcement followed a lawsuit filed a month ago by four veterans or widows charging the company with luring them into housing arrangements with predatory sales practices, misrepresenting a government housing assistance program, and then moving aggressively to collect rent from them.
