After visiting in 1922, G.K. Chesterton remarked:

America is the only nation in the world that is founded on a creed.

That creed is set forth with dogmatic and even theological lucidity in the Declaration of Independence; perhaps the only piece of practical politics that is also theoretical politics and also great literature.

It enunciates that all men are equal in their claim to justice,
that governments exist to give them that justice,
and that their authority is for that reason just.

(What I Saw in America).

On Independence Day, we proudly filed our summary judgment brief on behalf of a client who opposed housing discrimination.

What better way to celebrate our nation than to stand up for the values upon which it was built.

“As expressly acknowledged FHAA regulation comments, discrimination in and around one’s own home feels inherently more threatening; individuals are more vulnerable where they live—which calls for heightened protection against harassment that reaches them there:

One’s home is a place of privacy, security, and refuge (or should be), and harassment that occurs in or around one’s home can be far more intrusive, violative and threatening than harassment in the more public environment of one’s work place.  24 CFR 100 (81 FR 63054, 63055-56)

The reality remains that in this day and age, now more than ever, one protected class whose rights to safety and security in their homes must zealously be safeguarded are our citizens of Arab or Middle Eastern descent.”
