Breaking News in MFHC’s case against HUD: Disparate Impact survives!

Last night, a federal judge in Springfield, Massachusetts issued a nationwide Preliminary Injunction to prevent implementation of HUD’s new Disparate Impact Rule. The Court ruled that there was a likelihood of success on the merits of MFHC’s claim and that if the Rule were enacted it could cause irreparable harm to MFHC. Further, the Court observed that HUD’s new rule represented a “massive overhaul” of its 2013 Disparate Impact Rule and that HUD’s justifications for changing the rule were inadequate. We are immensely grateful for this ruling to preserve access to justice for all victims of housing policies that have a discriminatory effect. We also applaud our brilliant attorneys at Lawyers for Civil Rights and Anderson & Kreiger LLP for this stunning victory.
