McClureÀÀs two amended counterclaims sought damages against Habitat for intentional discrimination against McClure in not renewing his lease and for refusing to accommodate his handicap to afford him an equal opportunity to use and enjoy his apartment.
McClureÀÀs apartment and management had to force open the lock on the front door.ÀÀ ÁÁClearly, with such evidence presented, the trial court could reasonably have concluded that McClure represented an undesirable tenant independent of his mental handicap.
McClure wished to use this testimony to establish the fact that Habitat was aware of his mental disability at the time it refused to renew his lease.

 The Beat Page - Michal McClure
Michael McClure was born October 20, 1932 in Marysville, Kansas.
Eventually, McClure travelled to San Francisco and participated in a poetry workshop with Robert Duncan, his earliest experience within the genesis of San Francisco's evolving literary and social movement known as the Beat period.
McClure frequented the usual haunts of the Beats and spent a lot of this time in the Haight-Ashbury district in the mid-1960's where the "hipsters" became the "hippies".

McClure's attorney at Mandel, Lisa Parsons, entered into settlement discussions with Habitat's attorney, Sanford Kahn, which culminated in an agreed order of settlement whereby Habitat agreed to dismiss the 1992 case, accept past-due rent, and enter into another lease for the seven month period commencing May 1, 1992, and ending December 31, 1992.
McClure takes the position that the right to a jury trial is guaranteed by the provisions of the IHRA and the FHAA and that the trial court erred in denying this right in its order of November 16, 1995.
McClure also contends that the trial court's exclusion of testimony from Lisa Parsons as to conversations she had in connection with the settlement of McClure's 1992 case against Habitat was erroneous.

 You should know about ... Michael McClure - Entertainment
McClure's writings possess an almost feverish, mystical quality, crying out against rational constraints on the imagination; it recalls the work of Blake, Shelley, Artaud and many of the other writers who were an early inspiration to his poems.
But even more striking is the manner in which McClure is able to augment the mysticism of his poems with a concern for environmentalism and biology that has been at their core since his earliest works.
The critical neglect McClure's work has suffered in the wake of his late-'60s and early-'70s apogee, especially when considered in comparison to Kerouac, Ginsberg, Burroughs and other Beat writers, is unfortunate when one considers the profundity and scope of the writings which he has produced.

 Mantis 3: Poetry and Performance - All Moments Are One (Interview with Michael McClure)
MCCLURE: What Phil Whalen was saying in 1959—he said it in person, and then wrote me a letter about it—is that in one theory of the haiku, there is an image, a perception, an inspiration.
MCCLURE: If you go to my long poem titled “Dolphin Skull,” you’ll find that “Dolphin Skull” is divided into two sections: “Stanzas in Memory” and “Portrait of the Moment.” In “Stanzas in Memory,” I wanted to go to the unconscious, where Pollock would have gone to in his psychoanalytic drawings.
MCCLURE: I’m interested in poetry that is inspired and in poetry that is of the imagination, and I also respect poetry that is beautiful, or even poems that are ugly.
