Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs v. The Inclusive Communities Project, Inc.

Much has been written about the impact on "wealthier" communities and real estate values after the case of Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs v. The Inclusive Communities Project, Inc. decided by the U.S. Supreme Court this week.

Aside from all the hyperbole on both sides of the case, this is by far the best analysis of the decision I have read.  Just superb.

The impact of this decision will be measured in the months and years ahead.  My gut reaction tells me the plaintiff's bar will love it.  Christmas arrived in June.

If you are a real estate developer or property owner who builds or rents housing in "wealthy" neighborhoods, you need to discuss this case with your lawyer.
