A turning point in fair-housing law enforcement?

Published November 10, 2022


Insider quoted Robert Silverman for a story about a record $10 million fine against three Washington D.C. real estate firms accused of discriminating against low-income renters. Now, landlords in other cities may think twice about engaging in illegal discrimination, like turning away tenants with housing vouchers, Silverman said. "The settlement is evidence that whatever their business practices were, they're not ones that will be supported in any kind of a court proceeding," Silverman said. "It definitely puts other landlords on notice who are doing similar types of things."
