U.S. District Court for the S.D. of Florida Dismisses FHA Claims Against the City of Miami

The U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida recently dismissed three Fair Housing Act claims against the City of Miami in Case Numbers 13-cv-24506, 13-cv-24508 and 13-cv-24510. In each of the three cases the plaintiff alleged predatory lending policies in minority communities. However, in each of the three cases the Court found that that plaintiffs did not allege sufficient facts to prove standing or that the claims were not barred by the statute of limitations. Therefore, all three cases were dismissed with prejudice. In addition, there were unjust enrichment claims that were dismissed without prejudice.
