CASE ENTRY

Mason v. Adams County Recorder

The Fair Housing Act prohibits “making, printing, or publishing” any “notice, statement, or advertisement” with respect to “the sale or rental of a dwelling” that indicates any racial preference or discrimination. Does this mean that Ohio county recorders violate the law when they maintain property records that contain unenforceable, decades-old racially restrictive covenants? Sixth Circuit: No need to answer that question, because the plaintiff doesn’t have standing.
