Supreme Court hears argument on disparate-impact liability this morning

About an hour ago, the Supreme Court finished hearing oral argument on whether disparate impact claims are cognizable under the Fair Housing Act (as every circuit to address the issue has held since the Act's enactment in 1968). This blog has covered the issue repeatedly over the past few years.

This morning, Pemy Levy of Mother Jones had a piece on what's at stake in the case, while Lyle Denniston of SCOTUSblog previewed the legal arguments. We'll post the argument transcript when it becomes available.
