The Department of Housing and Urban Development has charged Bank of America with discriminating against homebuyers with disabilities, by asking potential borrowers with disability income to provide medical information — a doctor’s note, if you will — in order to secure a loan.
That’s against the law. The Fair Housing Act is pretty clear about it — you can’t have different criteria for someone because of a disability, and you can’t ask someone for personal medical information for a loan.
“The matter,” said HUD, “will now be handled by the Department of Justice.”
