Professor Roisman to Be Part of ABA Webinar Panel on Fair Housing
Professor Florence Wagman Roisman will participate on a webinar panel of law professors discussing the recently settled Mount Holly case, that deals with a disparate impact theory in relation to fair housing. The event is part of the American Bar Association’s (ABA) Professor’s Corner, a free monthly webinar on members of the ABA’s Real Property, Trusts and Estates Section. The event is scheduled for January 15, 2014, from noon to 1 p.m. Eastern time, and can be found at the following site: http://www.americanbar.org/groups/real_property_trust_estate/events_cle/professors_corner.html
Prior to the case settling, the hope had been that a decision in Mount Holly v. Mount Holly Gardens Citizens in Action would provide a definitive ruling regarding disparate impact liability under the Fair Housing Act, according to information about the event on the ABA’s website. The panelists will discuss the past, present and future of disparate impact theory and other recent developments in the area of Fair Housing.
Professor Roisman is the William F. Harvey Professor of Law, and was a Chancellor’s Professor and John S. Grimes Fellow in 2011.
