The Department of Housing and Urban Development recently issued a final rule adopting a disparate impact test for discrimination claims brought under the Fair Housing Act. In this webinar, we will discuss the rule’s implications for fair lending supervision and enforcement.


  • The rule's three-part burden of proof-shifting test for determining when a practice with "discriminatory effects" violates the FHA
  • The possibility of review by the U.S. Supreme Court in Township of Mount Holly v. Mt. Holly Gardens Citizens in Action, Inc.
  • What the rule means for disparate impact claims under the Equal Credit Opportunity Act
  • The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau's focus on fair lending and how to conduct self-assessments under a disparate impact analysis
