Texas Dept. of Housing and Community Affairs v. Inclusive Communities Project, Inc., 13-1371

In a suit by a Texas-based nonprofit corporation that assists low-income families in obtaining affordable housing, bringing a disparate-impact claim under sections 804(a) and 805(a) of the Fair Housing Act (FHA), alleging that the Department and its officers had caused continued segregated housing patterns by allocating too many tax credits to housing in predominantly black inner-city areas and too few in predominantly white suburban neighborhoods, the Fifth Circuit's judgment is affirmed where disparate-impact claims are cognizable under the FHA.
