HUD Seeks Comment on Amendments to 2013 Disparate Impact Rule

Monday, June 18, 2018 - 4:15pm

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) will publish in Wednesday’s Federal Register an advanced notice of proposed rulemaking seeking comment on possible amendments to HUD’s 2013 rule implementing the Fair Housing Act (FHA) disparate impact standard. The ruling seeks comments on whether any changes are appropriate following the Supreme Court’s 2015 ruling holding that disparate impact claims are cognizable under the FHA. Comments are due 60 days after the date of publication in the Federal Register.
