Topic: “Developments in Fair Housing: Mount Holly and Disparate Impact.”
The Mount Holly case, which had been pending at the Supreme Court, might have provided a definitive ruling as to the status and parameters of disparate impact liability under the Fair Housing Act. Now that the Mount Holly litigation is settled, the law with respect to disparate impact remains unsettled—particularly in light of HUD’s “affirmatively furthering” regulation and its intent to “affirmatively further” fair housing objectives.
Four panelists that will address the past, present, and future of disparate impact theory and HUD’s “affirmatively furthering” regulations:
Professor Robert Schwemm, University of Kentucky Professor Florence Roisman, University of Indiana-Indianapolis Professor Rigel Oliveri, University of Missouri Professor Stacy Seicshnaydre, Tulane University
