Supreme Court to Take Up Fair Housing Disparate Impact Case.

From SCOTUS blog:

Magner v. Gallagher 

Docket: 10-1032
Issue(s): (1) Whether disparate impact claims are cognizable under the Fair Housing Act; and, if so (2) what test should be used to analyze them.
ABA Journal news story about case is HERE.
Impact on HUD Proposed Regulation Publication? It is not clear what impact the Court decision to consider this case will have on the OMB approved proposed HUD disparate impact regulations; those regulations have not yet been published in the Federal Register for comment, although they were cleared by OBM on September 28th.
