On April 21, 2016, the United States filed a Statement of Interest together with FCS in Drayton v. McIntosh County (S.D. Ga.), a lawsuit alleging discrimination on the basis of race, color and national origin under a number of statutes, including the Fair Housing Act and Title VI. The complaint alleges that several defendants, including McIntosh County and the State of Georgia, discriminated against the Gullah Geechee population on Sapelo Island, through, among other things, the unequal provision of municipal services, unequal application of zoning and land use ordinances, and unfair property tax appraisals. The Statement of Interest, filed in connection with Defendants’ Motions to Dismiss, make arguments including that post-acquisition claims are cognizable under the FHA. The Appellate Section also intervened in the matter to address constitutional issues related to the ADA.
