U.S. Supreme Court to Hear Arguments On ‘Disparate Impact’ Rule on January 21

By Brian Honea

The U.S. Supreme Court is scheduled to hear arguments on January 21 on whether or not “disparate impact” claims are allowed under the Fair Housing Act of 1968. The case scheduled to be heard later this month, Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs, et al., v. The Inclusive Community Project, Inc., centers on claims that the Texas state housing department’s fixed criteria for approving tax credits for low-income housing developers resulted in the approval of such credits for a larger percentage of developers in areas more heavily populated by minorities than in areas more populated by whites.
