Case Name: American Ins. Ass'n v. U.S. Dep't of Housing and Urban Dev.
Court: U.S. Dist Ct. D.C. Docket: 13-cv-00966-RJL
Read AARP's Amicus Brief (PDF)
Case Issue: Does HUD's final rule, "Implementation of the Fair Housing Act's Discriminatory Effects Standard," violate the Fair Housing Act (FHA) because it allows plaintiffs (1) to show disparate impact only by demonstrating a statistical disparity and (2) displace challenged policy choices without showing theirs are at least as effective? Does the FHA preclude the application of the Rule to homeowner insurers specifically because (1) the Rule "pervasively injects" race into what was a previously "race-blind" process and (2) insurance law requirements break the causal chain between the alleged discriminatory acts and the injury claimed by plaintiffs?
