BGL secures another step toward justice in racial bias lawsuit against Bank of America.

In another step toward justice, a federal court has found that the National Fair Housing Alliance (NFHA) and other fair housing organizations have presented sufficient evidence that Bank of America discriminated based on race in its maintenance and marketing of foreclosed-upon properties for the case to go to a jury. On Friday, March 24, Judge Stephanie A. Gallagher of the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland resoundingly rejected Bank of America’s attempt to have the Fair Housing Act case dismissed. The plaintiffs are represented by a BGL team consisting of Jessie Weber, Andy Freeman, Monica Basche, and Lauren DiMartino, with assistance from paralegal Katherine Garvey and legal assistant LaClaudia Dyson.
