No ruling yet from Supreme Court in Texas “disparate impact” case

Next window for a decision is Thursday

No decision came in from the U.S. Supreme Court today on the much anticipated case that will decide whether it is within the bounds of the Fair Housing Act to employ the controversial legal doctrine of “disparate impact.”

The case in question is Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs v. The Inclusive Communities Project, Inc.

A good look at an informed cross-section of opinions is hosted here by the Urban Institute.

The case is one of only two left from the high court’s January sitting, and considered one of the most important for this term, particularly for the housing and mortgage finance industry.

The next window that a decision could be announced is Thursday morning.

HousingWire is tracking the court closely and will provide the latest coverage when the justices announce the ruling.
