9 (APA). Greater New Orleans Fair Housing Action Center, et al. v. United States Department of Housing and Urban Development and Robin Keegan, Executive Director of the Louisiana Recovery Authority, C.A. No , 2011 WL (D.C. Circuit April 8, 2011) A federal appeals court in Washington, D.C., ruled against fair-housing advocates and five African American homeowners who alleged the Road Home program was discriminatory. The state of Louisiana, one of the defendants in the case, says the ruling will allow it to pay about 120 homeowners whose Road Home grants were put on hold by a previous court ruling. In this race discrimination class action filed in federal court in Washington D.C. on behalf of 20,000 African-American residents of Orleans Parish, the Greater New Orleans Fair Housing Action Center, the National Fair Housing Alliance, and five individuals who own homes in New Orleans (collectively "plaintiffs") alleged that the formula used to distribute grants as part of the Road Home Homeowner Assistance Program, a housing redevelopment initiative designed to help homeowners affected by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, had a racially discriminatory effect. Plaintiffs argued that the same houses in a historically white neighborhood and historically black neighborhood would have cost about the same to restore, but they would have gotten wildly different grants because market values in black neighborhoods had been so depressed. A federal district court judge indicated that the formula was likely discriminatory, and he banned the state from spending pending funds while the case was adjudicated. The State appealed in September. The recent ruling reversed the district court; lifted the hold, and the federal appeals court remanded the case to the district court. The case was later settled. 9
