Settlement near in U.S. Supreme Court fair housing case

Mt. Holly v. Mt. Holly Gardens Citizens in Action, the case pending before the U.S. Supreme Court which addresses the question of whether a party can establish a discriminatory housing practice under the Fair Housing Act by showing that minorities have been disproportionately affected (the “disparate impact” test) — as opposed to showing an intent to discriminate — is nearing a settlement.

Philly.com is reporting that the parties have reached a tentative settlement, with signatures awaiting. If completed before Dec. 4, the parties will not have to proceed with argument before the high court on that date.
