Eastlake and Arlington Heights: New Hurdles in Regulating Urban Land Use?
Case Western Reserve Law Review
Two recent Supreme Court decision, City of Eastlake v. Forest City Enterprises, Inc. and Village of Arlington Heights v. Metropolitan Housing Development Corp., will directly affect the ability of lawyers to bring about housing reform for the urban poor. In his analysis, Professor Hogue finds that the combined effect of these two cases is to restrict the availability of federal constitutional remedies to invalidate discriminatory land use regulations enacted by municipalities. As a result, the author concludes that greater use will be made by developing state constitutional claims and statutory remedies by those challenging exclusionary housing patterns.
