The Supreme Court heard oral argument in Wells Fargo v. Miami, which was consolidated with Bank of America v. Miami. The cases concern whether the city of Miami can sue the banks under the Fair Housing Act for discriminatory mortgages given to African-American and Hispanic home buyers resulting in loan defaults, foreclosures, and less tax revenue The Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals ruled for the city of Miami, allowing it the chance to prove its claims at trial. The banks appealed, arguing that Congress never authorized these types of lawsuits under the Fair Housing Act and that Miami failed to show direct suffering from the discriminatory lending practices.

The court ruled on May 1, 2017, that cities can sue banks that engage in Fair Housing Act discriminatory lending practices, but threw out the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals order for a lower court to re-examine Miami’s lawsuit to prove a direct connection between the bank’s lending practices and the city’s losses. close
