The Fair Housing Act

The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) charged Bank of America with discriminating against homebuyers with disabilities who rely on disability payments by imposing unnecessary and burdensome requirements for loan applications.

HUD referred the action, based in part on complaints from individuals in Michigan and Wisconsin, to the Department of Justice.
