Professor Rigel Oliveri’s article, “Between a Rock and A Hard Place: Landlords, Latinos, Anti-Illegal Immigrant Laws, and Housing Discimination” (published in the Vanderbilt Law Review), was recently cited in an amicus brief filed by the State Attorneys General for the Supreme Court case Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs v. Inclusive Communities Project.

The case, which the Supreme Court decided to hear in October, centers on the question of whether “housing or lending practices can illegally harm minority groups, even when there is no proof of intent to discriminate,” according to an article from the Huffington Post.
