DARIEN - A Darien man is accusing the town's Little League of demoting his son after he proposed building an affordable housing complex near a former league official's home.

Christopher Stefanoni said in a federal lawsuit that Darien residents are so worried that affordable housing will draw more minorities to town, that they will do anything to stop it.

Lawyers for the Darien Little League deny the allegations.

A federal judge in Bridgeport is now deciding whether to approve the league's motion to dismiss the suit filed in 2013.
