And in case you didn’t think SCOTUS had beclowned itself enough, they also released this ruling.
WASHINGTON — A deeply divided Supreme Court delivered an unexpected reprieve to civil rights groups Thursday, ruling that housing discrimination need not be intentional in order to be illegal.
The justices said people objecting to lending, zoning, sales and rental practices can base their legal claim on the disparate impact those practices have on blacks or other minorities.
You got it. The government can still whack you for housing discrimination even if you weren’t intentionally discriminating.
