Craigslist and the FHA

David Bernstein at the VC has a very interesting post on a suit against Craigslist for violating the anti-discrimination provisions of the FHA.  Discrimination in ads for roommates is always a big topic of discussion when I cover the FHA, and this case might make a good teaching tool for first-year property.  Like Bernstein, I don't have an informed view of whether the FHA should apply to on-line forums like Craigslist, but the case does highlight the consequences of not explicitly exempting roommates and houseshares from the advertising provisions of the FHA.
