1.10.1 Housing Law in the Non-Credit Discrimination Context

There is an extensive body of cases brought under the Fair Housing Act (FHA) in the rental, zoning, and other non-credit contexts. Much of this case law is used by courts as a source of precedent in credit discrimination cases brought under both the FHA and the ECOA, even in non-housing finance cases.118 Some of these cases are discussed in this treatise when relevant. However, for a more extensive discussion of fair housing case law, advocates are advised to consult available fair housing treatises and other resources.119
