I have no idea how accurate this site is, but it is a start for you at least.
§4634. Right to breast-feed
Notwithstanding any other provision of law, a mother may breast-feed her baby in any location, public or private, where the mother is otherwise authorized to be. [2001, c. 206, §1 (new).]
It seems clear to me that your threats of eviction are 1) in retaliation for our requests that repairs be done to our apartment and 2) that you disagree with the state laws which protect my right to breastfeed anywhere public or private.
Your claims that we are causing problems amongst other tenants, is unfounded. The single problem that we had with our neighbor was resolved amicably amongst ourselves. I spoke with Kerry; she was kind and understanding when we asked her if her boyfriend could park with the other vehicles during the daytime while the kids were outside playing. Aside from being concerned for the children’s welfare, we were very concerned that the children could inadvertently damage his vehicle while playing next to the porch and the grass in the quad.
The fact that I talked to another tenant about a problem I was having with you is protected as one of my Civil Liberties. It is my right to start a tenants' union to discuss our landlord’s action, or lack of action; especially, when our (and our children’s) safety and wellbeing is being challenged.
When we had our Mother’s Day BBQ our patio furniture, which was placed near the back porch, did not interfere with anyone’s ability to park; however per your request, we will remove all outside furniture that belongs to us.
We do not think that contacting you for repairs would be a problem, since, as you said, it is your job to repair and maintain your building. That being said, we will not contact you via telephone for further repairs unless they cause an immediate safety hazard. We will submit maintenance issues to you in writing.
However, your demand that I not breastfeed my child without “covering myself” on your property is illegal discrimination. Under Maine state law I may breastfeed my child in any location public or private. You may not put provisions or restrictions on the manner in which I feed my child. You must quit all threats of unlawful evictions.
i personally would not send him any correspondence that had not first been reviewed by a lawyer.
i was just looking on the Maine tenants right website that a pp linked to, and there is a wee bit of a loop hole as far as eviction, depending on how your lease is worded. i would find yourself a tenant rights lawyer (there are links on that website for legal help), send them a copy of your lease, along with pictures or video and written descriptions/documentation of all the maintenance and safety issues you have, dates when you've tried to contact your landlord to fix them, and what his response has been.
and then, honestly, i'd look for a new place to live. i would not feel safe ever again living there after a conversation like that. what if he came to your house when your husband wasn't home, discovered you nursing in the yard uncovered, and got all irate and hostile like that in front of your kids? i'd get out of there, and quick. if he does want you out of there, he might be willing to refund your security deposit just to have you gone, and then you can find someplace safe to live.
