Olati Johnson Discusses Housing Discrimination Ruling

Former Skadden fellow Olati Johnson ('97) appeared on "PBS NewsHour" to discuss the Supreme Court ruling that determined housing discrimination does not have to be intentional for plaintiffs to sue (June 25). "Today was important because the Supreme Court made clear that practices that have the practical effect of excluding groups, even without a showing of intentional discrimination, that have the practical effect of excluding people based on an arbitrary characteristic, like race, or gender, or disability ... are prohibited by the Fair Housing Act," Olati said.
