Jeffrey P. Naimon was quoted on September 5, 2018 in a Scotsman Guide article, “HUD could soon defang disparate-impact rule,” which discussed the banking industry urging the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to establish a higher bar for the use of disparate impact. The article stated, “The banking industry contends that HUD’s rule as written falls far below that bar, merely requiring the plaintiff to show a statistical variation, and then shifting the onus on the defending company to prove there was no violation.”

Naimon added, “HUD will likely propose adjustments. There are different things they can do. They can rescind the entire rule, but I think that is probably unlikely. The most likely outcome here is that they will revise the rule in material ways to conform it to the Supreme Court’s decision.”
