WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A case before the Supreme Court that could limit housing discrimination claims is close to a settlement, potentially removing an opportunity for the justices to rule on the matter.
Carter Phillips, a Washington lawyer for Mount Holly, New Jersey, one of the parties in the case watched by the insurance and banking community, said on Thursday that an agreement appeared close but was not confirmed. Both sides have been working for months on a settlement.
