Bank of America Corp. v. City of Miami; Wells Fargo & Co. v. City of Miami

U.S. Supreme Court

Question(s) Presented

Bank of America Corp. v. City of Miami:

1. By limiting suit to “aggrieved person[s],” did Congress require that an FHA plaintiff plead more than just Article III injury-in-fact?

2. The FHA requires plaintiffs to plead proximate cause. Does proximate cause require more than just the possibility that a defendant could have foreseen that the remote plaintiff might ultimately lose money through some theoretical chain of contingencies?

Wells Fargo & Co. v. City of Miami:

1. Whether the term “aggrieved” in the Fair Housing Act imposes a zone-of-interests requirement more stringent than the injury-in-fact requirement of Article III.

2. Whether the City is an “aggrieved person” under the Fair Housing Act.
