FEATURED STORY


Here’s the Supreme Court Case
You May Have Missed

Supreme Court
 

Amidst all the buzz over the Supreme Court’s rulings on marriage equality and the Affordable Care Act, the court also issued a ruling in a housing discrimination case last week. It held that intent isn’t necessary to prove discrimination under the Fair Housing Act; plaintiffs can also prove it by showing that actions have a disparate impact on a protected class. Read REALTOR® Magazine’s analysis of what that means to you, along with NAR Legal’s full summary of the case.
