I was told a prospect was not suitable because of his disability. I asked the owner to tell him he was denied and he says he doesn't have time. Of course I could be less than honest, but I have morals. If it comes to a confrontation, it would be helpful to know if I could be sued for following his wishes.. Maybe I'm in the wrong business.

I think you could be held accountable by the owner, I would tread lightly, you cannot deny anyone anywhere they want to live, disabled or not.

I see it has been quite a long time since you posted your question, but just in case you are still monitoring this and are still unsure,,,

You cannot discriminate against people with disabilities. They are protected under fair housing laws and you can be prosecuted personally for doing so.
