Supreme Court protects tool to fight US housing discrimination

A sharply divided Supreme Court upheld a key tool used to fight housing discriminationThe Obama administration was handed another significant legal victory Thursday when a sharply divided Supreme Court upheld a key tool used to fight housing discrimination. The ruling — also a win for rights activists — came the same day that court judges upheld a bitterly disputed portion of President Barack Obama’s landmark health care reform, in a separate but similarly closely watched case. The justices ruled 5-4 that housing practices and policies with discriminatory outcomes could be challenged under the 1968 Fair Housing Act, even if there is no proof that government agencies or companies meant to discriminate.
