THIS CASEBOOK contains a selection of U. S. Court of Appeals decisions that analyze, interpret and apply provisions of the Fair Housing Act. * * * The purpose of the Fair Housing Act is "to provide, within constitutional limitations, for fair housing throughout the United States." 42 U.S.C. 3601.Linkletter v. Western & Southern Financial Group, 851 F. 3d 632 (6th Cir. 2017) * * *Under 42 U.S.C. 3604(b), it is unlawful " t]o discriminate against any person in the terms, conditions, or privileges of sale or rental of a dwelling, or in the provision of services or facilities in connection therewith, because of race, color, religion, sex, familial status, or national origin." In addition, the Act makes it unlawful "to coerce, intimidate, threaten, or interfere with any person in the exercise or enjoyment of ... any right granted or protected by section ... 3604 ... of this title." 42 U.S.C. 3617. Among other things, these sections prohibit discriminatory harassment that unreasonably interferes with the use and enjoyment of a home - by another name, a hostile housing environment. Krueger v. Cuomo, 115 F.3d 487, 491 (7th Cir. 1997); DiCenso v. Cisneros, 96 F.3d 1004, 1008 (7th Cir. 1996); see also Bloch, 587 F.3d at 781 (recognizing that the protections under sections 3604(b) and 3617 may be coextensive). * * * A hostile-housing-environment claim requires a plaintiff to show that: (1) she endured unwelcome harassment based on a protected characteristic; (2) the harassment was severe or pervasive enough to interfere with the terms, conditions, or privileges of her residency, or in the provision of services or facilities; and (3) that there is a basis for imputing liability to the defendant. See DiCenso, 96 F.3d at 1008; see also Alamo v. Bliss, 864 F.3d 541, 549 (7th Cir. 2017) (listing elements of a Title VII hostile-workplace claim); Honce v. Vigil, 1 F.3d 1085, 1090 (10th Cir. 1993) (adopting elements of a Title VII hostile-workplace claim for the FHA). Wetzel v. Glen St. Andrew Living Community, LLC, 901 F. 3d 856 (7th Cir. 2018)
