Monday’s Adjudication Roundup

By Jamila Moore

  • J.P. Morgan Chase settled a case against them for allegedly charging African Americans and Hispanics higher mortgage rates. This 53 million dollar settlement comes from the company’s practices just three years after the U.S. housing market crash.
  • A Texas developer is suing the city of Dallas; however, a Texas justice refused to hear the case. Local developers claim the city built a library on the land in violation of the deed.
  • Pennsylvania state senators recently became involved in a lawsuit between a landowner and Delaware River Basin Commission’s for the commission’s fracking venture. The senators allege that the state did not give the commission the proper authority.
