Dismissal of Lawsuit Accusing HUD Secretary Ben Carson of Dismantling Obama-era Fair Housing Law

As reported by the Washington Post:

A federal judge on Friday threw out a lawsuit against Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson and his agency, dealing a blow to advocates challenging how the department enforces fair housing laws.

Chief Judge Beryl A. Howell, of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, dismissed the case after finding that the plaintiffs, three housing advocacy nonprofit groups, failed to prove they were harmed by HUD’s move to effectively suspend an Obama-era rule requiring communities to address housing discrimination.
