Prof. White on Settlement of Supreme Court Discrimination Case

November 14, 2013

In a post for Credit Slips, Professor Alan White discusses the settlement of a pending case before the Supreme Court. He writes, “Banks and insurance companies are apparently gnashing their teeth at the news that the Mt. Holly case pending before the Supreme Court has been settled.  The case itself does not involve financial services; it arose from a Fair Housing Act claim that a neighborhood redevelopment plan would  have a discriminatory impact on black residents.  The legal issue is whether the Fair Housing Act permits discrimination claims based on disparate impact.”
