As the October Term 2014 of the U.S. Supreme Court draws to a close, opinions have yet to be announced in a number of major cases. Of the remaining major cases awaiting decision, Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs v. The Inclusive Communities Project, Inc. has been pending the longest.

Inclusive Communities, which presents the issue of whether disparate impact claims are cognizable under the Fair Housing Act (FHA), was argued on January 21, 2015. Our prior alert regarding the oral argument is available here.

We anticipate that the Supreme Court will announce its decision in Inclusive Communities on or before Monday, June 29. In anticipation of its announcement, we have scheduled a webinar regarding the Inclusive Communities decision. In this webinar, we will analyze the decision and its rationale and explore its potential implications for mortgage and non-mortgage creditors.
